  • The Hero I'll have to wait to meet

    Posted on 3/11/16 - by Ashley Spence AshleySpence13@gmail.com
    I think of you every time I see my dad and your dog tag that he never takes off. You cross my mind every time I see my brother. He looks just like you. I know you were an artist like me, and I think every time I sketch or doodle just like you always did. Nanny would watch me doodle when I was little and told me you would have taught me so much. It hurts not getting the chance to meet you, but I think that's the sign of a real hero. You've made this mark on the world and so many people in it, that even a generation later without ever meeting I can miss you and wish you were here. I'm so glad I can read these stories about your life. Thank you for being the worlds hero. I'm so honored to be able to say you're my uncle. Love you very very very much.

    Dear SGT Roger James Spence, 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.

    With respect, Sir

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.
