    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Harold.

    Eternal Rest Grant Unto Him Oh Lord, May His Soul And All The Souls Of The Faithfully Departed Rest In Peace.

    Just saying high and letting you know that you will never be forgotten. Every once in awhile I run into some of our old college crowd. It's pretty scary around here on earth right now. If you can put in a word for us to the Almighty. Rest easy "farm boy" Every time I hear "American Soldier" it reminds me of you.

    Just wanted to leave some thoughts today Harold. We had such good times didn't we? Your beautiful 56 Black and White Ford coup. That flat top haircut. Remember the day we went to your farm and then cruised back up 95 to River Falls? Remember homecoming at UW River Falls? Such a joyous laugh and good nature were the things I remember most about you! It broke my heart to have you lose your life in that crappy place. Life went on here in Western Wi and you wouldn't recognize Stillwater anymore. Every time I hear "Traveling Soldier" I think of you.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/11/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SGT Harold John Smith, 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 www.buildthecenter.org.
