    In remembrance of my Uncle Dickie, I'm your niece Susie and unfortunately I never had the honor of meeting you, as I was born just a few weeks after your death. However my mother has kept your memory alive in our family, and she speaks of you often. I would like to express my gratitude, to you and all those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy today. Uncle Dickie has 2 siblings alive, one in Evasville, IN, and the other in Monahans, TX, along with many niece's and nefews. We love you!!!!?

    I remember Dick Noelke from my childhood growing up in Bloomington Illinois...I also remember that his sister was married to Jerry Jones Who lived a block down on Oakland Ave from where I lived...Dick visited Bloomington for the summer from California and we became friends...I am now 67 and he was a few years older then me...His brother-in-law (Jerry) played baseball with all us kids and I always remembered how nice they all were to us back then...A real shame he died so young, he was a good person and I have never forgotten him even after all these years...RIP my friend and thank you for the good memories...Hope to see you again someday....Terry White
    (if Jerry Jones or Dick's sister are still alive, it would be great to hear from you)

    Dear PFC Richard Allen Noelke, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    As I said, Pfc Richard A Noelke was a very dear friend, like a member

    of our family. Here is a picture and a few things I have about him.

    I also have his high school graduation picture but haven't come across

    it yet.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
