REMEMBRANCES

  • Not Forgotten

    Posted on 2/22/03 - by Candace Lokey
    I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

    We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

  • AN AMERICAN HERO

    Posted on 1/9/00 - by WILLIAM BROWNING WBROW0000@AOL.COM
    Donald Saegaert and I were flying together for the 145th AVN. BTN. Dong Xwai came under a tremendous attack. They called for all available helicopters for emergency combat assults. Donald was one of the first helicopters to attempt to go into Dong Xwai. He passed over a bridge on final approach and a .50caliber machine gun shot 2 helicopters down. All aboard were killed. Donald never turned away from dangerous missions and servered his country with honor. He is a true American hero. I was proud to have served with Donald Saegaert.

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.
