  • A Friend Remembers

    Posted on 3/6/18 - by Thomas Conte
    Tommy was 4 years older than me but we were friends on Staten Island. His sister Rosemary lived down the street, so when Tommy would visit her we got to know each other. When I heard the news that he was killed in Vietnam I was shocked. Poor Tommy, he was just here and now he's gone. I'm 64 years old now but I still think about him and tell people about his loss. God rest your soul Marine.

    I remember him always---died to soon and too quickly. He is missed. After all these years, Thomas, I still remember your being a wonderful student and person.

    Dear PFC Thomas Spadaro, 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
