    Dear PFC John Vincent Akin, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Thank you John for the sacrifice of your life and future for our country. You are gone now to GOD'S loving arms but those of us who remember you as a young boy and then a young man in Pittsfield will always miss you! Wish you could be here with us this holiday season.
    I remember when a couple of young girls on the way to school were saved from a couple of garden snakes by you (our hero forever) ! You were a school crossing guard and ran all the way down the street just to save us...We love you forever!

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.
