    Bobby Packard was best friends to my brother Tom and I. He really was a great friend to have. A really nice guy who wouldn't hurt a fly, and who wouldn't hesitate to back up his friends!
    We received this picture in the mail from Bobby, who was unfortunately killed the next day, while the picture was enroute to our house.
    Bobby was killed at the age of 19 and I can tell you that he was a great guy, the kind of guy with whom we would have remained friends for life!
    Point of information - Bobby was drafted into the Marines and right after basic training was sent to Viet Nam. During that period, most draftees were placed in the Army like I was. However, he was proud to be a Marine! We will keep Bobby's memory alive!

    Dear PFC Robert Frank Packard, 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

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
