    Dear SP4 James Ronald Parker, 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

    Ronnie and I were classmates for 4 years at Clyde A Erwin High School near Asheville, North Carolina. I remember him as being a quiet and easy going fellow, and always a nice smile on his face. Too bad that we rememmber him only as he was... and cannot know him as he would have been. I will post his picture at a later time.

    Dear Soldier,
    I am a Junior from Gridley High School and we are working on the Gridley High School Posting Project to post remembrances for the men and women who died serving our country in the Vietnam War. I speak on behalf of the entire class when I say that we are truly indebted to you and your fellow soldiers. You had the courage to fight and made the supreme sacrifice while doing it, giving up your life. Your bravery is an inspiration to myself along with millions of others and you will remain a hero for as long as this country stands. May God bless you and your family.

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
