    Dear PFC Norman Ira Phipps, 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

    My Grandma Gladys (phipps-willis) has told me a lot about you. I have asked her tons of questions in my 22 years pertaining to you. When I was little she showed me pictures of you when you played football for Haysi Highschool. My Grandfather (amos willis) and my father (Bana Willis) still get misty-eyed to this day when your name is mentioned. They loved you and still love you very much. They talk so fondly of you, I wish we could have met I'm sure you would have been one of my favorite uncles...

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
