    David, you were so big I didn't think you could be killed. We went through some tough times together. Talked to your big brother after 50 years. Still laugh when I think of your nick name, "Nuts & Bolts". RIP C co, 2nd, 506th, 101st third platoon.

    This year the Niles McKinley class of 1966 celebrated our 50th class reunion. You were missed. I happened to sit next to a cousin of yours who told me that you saved many lives while sacrificing your own of a hill in Thua Thien.

    That sounds like you, you were always a great friend who could be depended on! Thank you for your service !
    Can hardly wait until we see each other again in Heaven!
  • You are not forgotten

    Dear CPL David Alexander Semeraro, 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
