    Norm lived just down the hall form me at the Univ. of Wisc. He was a man who knew where he was going and couldn't wait to get there. Driven, dedicated and absolutely Fearless and to me the last person you would ever think would not to come back.

    I think of you often.

    We searched and searched and searched, optimistic at first and then with broken hearts. I worried about this for years and was heartened to see they had found you. I so wish we had and hope your flight to be with the angels was quick.

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.
