    Dear PVT Philip Gene Overturf, 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.

    With respect, Sir

    Phil - You were too young, too inquisitive, too unlucky. 11 marines - 5 wounded, 4 killed, 2 missed. You didn't do anything "wrong' - you were just "unlucky". If your family wants to contact me, please do. I was with you April 20, 1967
    and you'll live in my memory forever. Your "kids smile" - the "devilish grin" - Till we meet at heavens gate, my friend, your brother marine - Gary Williams

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.
