    I wish you were still here so I could have known my uncle. I was not quite 3 when you were killed. But even at such a young age, I still remember certain things when you were laid to rest. My aunt Stella begging to see you, the 21 gun salute and the lonesome sound of the bugle playing TAPS. Rest In Peace my uncle, you will never be forgotten.

    Dear SP4 Edward Lamar Simmons, 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

    He was my brother. He always made us proud. He was always a loving, caring person that everybody who knew him, loved him. "A light from our household is gone, a voice we loved is stilled, a place is vacant in our hearts that never can be filled."

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
