    Lt. Bobo Sir:
    Although we never met, you were my brother. Your death was a tragic loss for your family as well as our country. I pray that you are with God and your fellow Marines who also perished. You made the greatest sacrifice that anyone can make and for that I humbly say, thank you and Semper Fi.

    2LT. John Paul Bobo,
    Please know that your sacrifice will never be forgotten. The lives you saved as you gave your own, is the most anyone can ever give of themselves. May you rest in peace.

    Dear 2LT John Paul Bobo, sir, and Captain Michael Peter Getlin, sir.

    Remembering each of you and those you served with. Although it has been more than 50 years, you are each remembered for the sacrifice you made to save your Marines.

    May America always remember, and may we never forget the true cost of what far too many take for granted in this wonderful country.

    With respect, Sirs
  • God Bless my friend.

    I remember you often and speak to my children about what a great person you are. The brief time we spent together as friends is cherished. We served in Vietnam at different times and my only wish is that we could talk about it today. You are gone, but never forgotten. Rest in peace and know that you are missed and loved by your friends and family.

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
