    It took me 48 years to hunt down a photo of you, after being a "faceless" casualty you finally have a photo to go with your name. RIP Uncle Gilbert.

    Dear CPL Gilbert Coroa Peixoto, sir,

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

    I was far to young to remember you when you died but my family did a great job of keeping your memory alive. We got to know a lost uncle through their memories and reading your letters you sent home. I could not be anymore proud to have an uncle who wasn't drafted but signed himself up to give back to our country. Your sacrifice and bravery will be forever remembered.

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
