  • Good High School/football friend

    I was very sad to hear of Jay's death many years ago. I was Jay's friend in High School and on the football team. He was a great guy. I visited his name on the "WALL" a number of times.

  • Still fond memories of Jay

    Posted on 12/26/15 - by Brian D Brian.defrang@aol.com
    I went to school with Jay starting in Middle School. I always will think of him and his buddy Johnny Lipke and their teasing back and forth with the teachers - always in good natured ways. I grieved when I heard of Jay's passing and want to thank him for the memories and his sacrifice.

  • What a great guy.

    Posted on 11/11/15 - by Ted Rollheiser
    Jay was one of the five on our west coast road trip in 1966, the summer after we graduated from high school. Everyone liked Jay. He and I had some great laughs and good times on that trip and working together at Amurol Sugarless Gum Factory in Naperville. Just an all around great guy.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/15/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear CPL Jay Charles Sacks, 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.
