    Ernest just to let you know you are never ever forgotten. A flag was flown over the Pentagon on Memorial Day in your honor. I had the honor to give that flag to your Sisters. Although we grew up opposite
    sides of the country, please know all of your relatives remember you. God Bless you Ernest.

    When I saw your name among the other heroes on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, I researched our possible connection and learned we would have been 4th cousins. Distant, but related all the same. I honor your service and sacrifice and am proud to learn of your life and love of country.

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
