  • Remembering my cousin

    Posted on 5/12/16 - by Cloretta Knebel Rausch lcrausch@pwrtc.com
    Larry was my cousin. Although he was 10 years older than I, I remember him as being a funny, yet caring individual. Just prior to leaving for Vietnam, Larry sang the song "Let There Be Peace on Earth" during his Sunday service at the Winamac Methodist Church. It was so appropriate. I attended his military funeral services which were quite impressive to a 14 year old. Larry, along with his parents and two brothers, now rest together in our Heavenly Father's loving arms.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 3/7/16 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear 1LT Larry Gene Bonnell, 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

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.
