  • My Friend

    All these years I have not forgotten you. You were strong when I was weak, lifted me up when I was down, and you knew I was there for you as well - brothers in arms we were!
    To his family and friends: you are the only ones that could know the pain and sorrow and grief that I felt the night that Alan died. Everyone who got to know him loved him and I was no exception. Many times over the years I have wanted to reach out to his family and share with them what a special man and friend he was to me and others that he served with. But alas time slipped away. Alan was, brave, strong, and was always true to his principles. He loved his family and there was a girl friend back home that he couldn't wait to return to and marry. I wish I could remember her name. Well, enough for now. Thanks for letting and old soldier reminisce

    DEAR PFC AHLFIELD,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS AN INDIRECT FIRE INFANTRYMAN. YOU WERE ONLY 18, JUST TOO YOUNG.
    REST IN PEACE.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Alan Paul Ahlfield, 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

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.
