    Dear SSGT Lawrence Carroll Rose, 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

    Mr. Rose...

    I'm so sorry I never got a chance to meet you! I've heard about you from my dad, Don Burkland, my whole life. I have heard about you from many who have missed you over the years like Mr. Herb Rosen and Mr. Jeff Hayes. I also know Nance Saviola & her mom. They remember you with fond memories.

    Thank you for your service to our country, and the ultimate sacrifice you had to make. God Bless You!

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
