REMEMBRANCES

  • Dennis was my neighbor

    Posted on 9/24/17
    My husband and I are watching the current series on the Viet Nam War. What a tragic series of lies and velour. I grew up next store to Dennis. His parents asked me to play my guitar and to sing at his funeral. It was more than an honor. And I hope I validated his service and that of all of the other soldiers who died and who survived. Although I protested the war, I never protested those who served. They did so because of a greater calling and dedication.
    Dennis, you had so much potential.

    While I never had the honor of meeting Denis, it is truly inspiring to learn about him, and I pledge that the SigEp Patriots Project will always remember his life and selfless patriotic service.

    Dear Captain Denis O'Connor, 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

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 www.buildthecenter.org.
