    I played ball with Donnie Sperl in 8th grade. Stu played with Dennis Sperl at Juneau HS, State Champs in 1961. The Sperls lived in Thane, had 3 or 4 freezers full of deer. I remember I would trade Donnie my beef tongue sandwich for his venison sandwich b/c he was tired of always having to eat deer meat. Our family moved from Juneau in 1961 leaving behind many good friends.

    Donald was my wife's Uncle. I am actively seeking any information/stories about him from the men that served with Donald in H&S or D Company, 3-12 Infantry, 4th Infantry Division in Vietnam. Thank you.

    Dear CPL Donald Walter Sperl, 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

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
