    I remember the afternoon that you walked into the restaurant and sat down in my section. After serving you and talking to you I was in Love! I told my boss " I am going to marry hi My! She laughed and said girl you are crazy! I was a pretty good cut up at work! The day Franklin and I got married , we went to the restaurant and told my boss! She was so happy for us! I loved you when you walked into my life and I love you still! I think of you often an I miss you still. This is one man who loved his country and was proud of it. Hawaii was home an would have been for all three of us but Vietnam got in our way and robbed us all three of the life we had planned. I will love you forever Franklin!

  • Brudda Frank....Miss you

    Posted on 6/3/15 - by dennis5606@hotmail.com
    I was station in Nam with Frank..Vinh Long Province. We played guitar together along with Creighton Cenido, Joe Bautista(deceased), Steve Maeda, Wayne Awai, Anthony Wong,
    We had a great time. Frank and I were the closest, shared our life stories...who/where he got married to, his new born daughter, Michelle Lee,
    His mom worked at Davenroy's...we were going to form a musical band after we got out. We fought some other guys together because that's the way things were
    Backing each other.That night he did not come back after flight on the chopper, I went crazy looking for him where guys would hold me down and talk some sense that he was gone. I have pictures of us and a cassette tape of us singing.My name is Dennis Delfin. I live in Hilo. Love you Frank.

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.
