    Russ, it has now been, gosh, over 47 years since we sat next to each other in
    Mr. Toronto's music class at Selden Junior High. Yet, it truly seems like yesterday.
    But, you had bigger fields to conquer - and, did.
    I remember your laugh and that broad smile, which you had always
    at the ready! Thank you for the "bright moments".

    Well done, be thou at rest.

    Will see you again, soon.
    Bob

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 1/28/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SP5 Russell George Ahrens, 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

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.
