    We never met, but my mother (Kathy Peebles) went to school with you. Every Memorial Day we decorate the graves of our family in San Jacinto. She always sets flowers aside for you.

    Joe,
    Hardly a day goes by that I don't think of all you guys. We walked in the same squad together. I'll never forget your smile and great positive attitude even in the worst conditions. We call you surfer Joe. You always said "A day at the beach could cure anything". I love you and miss you. You were a dear friend. Love you brother and you are never forgotten.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/8/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SP4 Joseph Patrick Pink, 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

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.
