    Leon, I often think of you my classmates from Port Richmond, you and Kuprevich, both friends from our time together at NC high school class of 1963. You and Kup's falcon spirit cut short.

    I SALUTE HERO......
  • Vietnam Veterans of Port Richmond

    We gathered together a few years ago after another of our brothers in arms had passed. A group of North Catholic graduates and friends who at one time resided in Port Richmond decided to erect a plaque to honor all veterans and especially those who we knew who lived in the neighborhood.Finally we will install and dedicate this monument this Sunday Nov. 8th.

    I do remember you because I I was a grade school crosswalk "safety" guard at the corner of Somerset and Thompson where you once lived. I saw your parents on several occasions at The Wall in Philly and D.C.I am also a Vietnam Veteran '67-69. I will place a laminated photo of you beneath our 2,700 lb. granite monument and we will remember you at this solemn ceremony. "Never Forgotten"

    Dear PFC Leonard Salvatore Pelullo, 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
  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

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
