    Ross---You were also a member of Co. B 3/503 Infantry,173rd Airborne Brigade and in 1st. Platoon however met your end in a heroic action on 3 March1968.So many of you gave your lives on that day and that date has become a day of mourning for us who survived.Perhaps we will meet again but if not you are always in my mind as one of the best B company had to offer.Rest now Airborne Brother as you are honored forever....Snyder 2nd. Platoon.

    Chuck Ross took over a machine gun after the gunner got hit in the leg. He did his job and it cost him his life. Jim Jacobs

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CPL Charles Gregory Ross, 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 www.buildthecenter.org.
