    Arthur is my brother. he joined the marines to better his life. I remember when he came home from boot camp for a short leave before being shipped to Vietnam. he was a changed man. he wrote me when he was in Vietnam in good spirits and said when he got home he was going to get him a 1969 GTO. I hope he didn't suffer. I love you, brother.

    My uncle CPL Ferg Carroll was KIA on 6/18/1968 on Hill 689 Phoui Noui in Quang Tri near Khe Sanh. He was in K/3/4 since October 67. Before that he was in A/1/6. It is probably a long shot but does anyone in his company have more details on what happned that day or the time leading up to it?

    I attached a link to the 3rd Bn 4th Marines Facebook page. I posted all of the pictures Ferg sent home. I have no names for anyone in the pictures besides Ferg himself. Maybe someone on here can help identify some of them and the stories behind them. If anyone has more pictures of Ferg or just general pictures of his company please send them to me.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/30/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Dan Arthur Bolton Jr, 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

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.
