  • I saw you go down that day

    Ron, you and I had only met that very day that you were killed. You were riding on my armored personnel carrier that day as a dismount in the jungle. You were instructed to get down and walk and I told you to "be safe". Within about 10 minutes you were shot right in front of us. Our medic tried everything to save you, but it was not to be. Two others were also killed that day alongside of you. They were probably your friends. I want you to know that I personally got that Viet Cong soldier that had shot you. There were two of them. Rest in Peace Brother! I got your name rubbing from the Wall last year. You died a HERO in my eyes. Love you man, Sgt. Danny Chrisler.

    Ronny, you were my first boyfriend at St. Anthony in Toledo. I still have the notes we passed back and forth at school. I remember the dances we went to at Ryder school on Friday nights. I can still see you in your shawl colored sweater, black with a gray and white stripe. I loved you then and still do. I think of you so many times and thank you for your service to our country. I know you are with your Dad, Mom and Brother now. I miss you and will never forget you. XO

    Dear PFC Ronald Anthony Osinski, 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
