  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 4/5/14 - by Curt Carter
    Dear CPL Richard Peguero, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter
  • Miss my brother in law

    Richard was a great brother in law. So kind and generous and always had a big smile. I saw him last just before he left for Vietnam. Had he lived, he would have been successful in anything he tried to do. I remember his 1960 light blue Plymouth with a homemade Playboy bunny attached to his back seat facing outward. Boy did I think I was cool driving around in his car. I love you brother and miss you. I'll see you again someday in Heaven.

  • My Brother

    Richard, the last time I saw you was at my wedding. Not only did we graduate from high school together but you also became my brother-in-law. Your sister never forgets you, especially on your birthday.
  • Remembering Richie

    I was Richie's platoon leader and rode on his APC from the time I arrived in Nam till he was killed. He was a very good man. Always cheerful and talking about his new bride. He remains in my thoughts and will always symbolize the greatest tragedy of the war. I would like to hear from Richie's
    family, friends, or fellow veterans from Company A, 2nd Bat., 22nd Mech. Inf.

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
