  • Sweet and Shy

    Posted on 2/25/18 - by Sue Schapiro Davis
    Ed was a childhood friend while growing up in Arcadia, Pennsylvania. Unlike his younger brother, Ed was one of the shyest boys in town, who turned beet red whenever anyone tried to talk to him. His special talent was throwing apples at me as I rode my bike up the road. Gone way too soon. RIP, Ed.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Edward John Parada, 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

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
