    SGT William Stocks of Glen Burnie MD. I remember you on your birthday. I saw your name on The Wall the last time i was in DC. I heard a letter written by your mother some years ago. Very well said and done. I trust that you are enjoying ever-lasting life with your mother and others in the Hereafter. You are NEVER forgotten!

    I heard the letter that your mother wrote in "Dear America:Letters Home from Vietnam". It was so heart braking. I also read about you in the book of the aforementioned title.

    Just know that you, your service and your sacrifices will NEVER be forgotten! Rest in Peace.
  • Thank you - all of you...

    I am a senior in High School and we performed Dear America. I was cast as the Mother of William R. Stocks. I didn't realize at the time how much of an impact this role would make on me. I feel such a strong love and connection to both William and his Mother. I just wanted to say thank you, Bill, for giving your life to preserve this country and for being so brave. You died at such a young age.. and if anyone knows anything more about William or his mother, please contact me. We were chosen to perform at State Conference and I want to do justice to his mother. Thank you.
  • I read about you today

    Today my homework for E.L.A was to read a few stories in our literacy books. One of them was "A Mother's Words" I wanted to know if this was a true story. So I looked you up and found this website. If you can here me all the way from heaven, I want you to know that I thank you very much for your service and sacrifice.

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
