    I remember going to the wall with my Father Bryan Selix as a child and looking at your name! As a teacher now in Alabama I am learning about this awesome resource. It's so good to put a face with a name of a distant family member that served our country.

    Although 44 years have passed (tomorrow). Your life and sacrifice have endured through your family and namesakes.
    They say time heals. I do not want to heal, as that means you are not as close to my heart.

    Dear SSGT James Michael Selix, 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, 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
