    35 YEARS LATER I'M LOOKING UP INFO. ABOUT THE USS SOMERS WHEN I CAME ACROSS THIS PAGE. WE ALL DO TWO THINGS.. WE LIVE AND WE DIE, AND IF WE DO THEM WELL WE HAVE BEEN SUCCESFUL.
    I AM SADDENED BY THIS BELATED NEWS, ALTHOUGH MANY YEARS AGO I HEARD WHAT I HOPED WAS A RUMOR ABOUT YOUR DEATH. WE WERE GOOD FRIENDS, IF ONLY FOR A SHORT TIME, AND I STILL REMEMBER YOU SWABBING THE DECKS OF THE SOMERS, SINGING "TOGETHER AGAIN".
    DYING IN THE SERVICE OF ONES' COUNTRY IS THE ULTIMATE CONTRIBUTION TO DEMOCRACY. I SALUTE YOU. BUDDY.

    I was on throttle watch in the forward engine room & counting the rounds from our 5 in. guns with everyone on watch with me when we noticed a difference in the sound of one of the rounds. I think there was 2 more rounds went off after it, then our guns went silent. It was a few min. before we got the word about Jimmy, but when it came I still hold the memory of him that popped into my mind. A Young , Cheery , Good Natured Smiling Face . Jimmy, always young, I miss You. Russell Hartley MM2

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.
