    It's been too many years now but you will always have the most important place in my heart. You were my first true love and my very last. I think about you all the time and wish things had turned out differently. My only consolation is that you are in heaven, now with your parents, and are pain free. I will always love and miss you.

    I was a little girl and Charles was a friend of my cousin. When Charles would talk to me you could see in his eyes he was really listening and cared. Because of Charles I learned the importance of caring, and direct eye contact. Charles was interested, listing , and cared. When I heard Charles was not coming home my heart was broken I lost my best friend. I think Charles was one of the reason I became a nurse. To this date I always think about Charles and miss him greatly.

    I was 12 years old in 1967 and lived in Montvale NJ. My parents and I visited a small white Methodist church off Spring Valley Road. I remember seeing Bigham with his parents in the same church from time to time. One particular Sunday when his parents entered the church I noticed that his mom was crying, I turned to my mother who explained that their son had just been killed in Vietnam.

    For some reason I remembered that day in church, almost 50 years ago. I was haunted by it for some reason.

    My memory of bigham consists of him being tall with a tall crop of dark hair like Fonzie. He always had a smile on his face too. I guess he was one of the true heroes from Bergen County.

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.
