    Bernard: You have made the Ultimate Sacrifice:

    If any Family members or Friends of Bernard reads this, I am looking for a picture of him to send to W.DC for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. It would be nice ti have a picture to be his name. Military or High School picture will do.

    Thank You Jim Sawmiller

    Bernie and I grew up together as children. He lived across Mahoning Ave, in Warren, Oh. We played together and ate together when Mrs Peeler, our neighbor, would have us in for lunch along with her grandson Butch over 60 years ago. I will never forget him or his family and I salute him as a true American hero! Semper Fi Brother Marine!

    Dear CPL Bernard James Rodzen, 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
