    I grew up with Buck, I was a couple of years younger but I always looked up to Buck because he was an adventurer, a free spirit, and very smart. I remember the last time I saw you was at Tempe High School, don't know how I ended up their that day because I didn't attend Tempe High, and their was a band playing and you were out their dancing with a beautiful young woman...it just so caught the moment and will be in my memories forever. The next thing I heard is you had dropped out of High School and joined the Marines. The next thing after that I heard was that you had died there. I was a senior in High School and it hit me hard. In four years I had had three people I knew die in Viet Nam, and two high school classmates come back shadows of the people I once knew. A tragedy. I will always be glad that I knew Buck growing up in Tempe AZ for the first years I did. A memorable, memorable person......

    My dad David Burgos Ochoa was one of Bucks best friends, they had no idea they would meet again in Vietnam. I was told I. Was named after him. My dad has since passed. My name is Buck Ochoa. My dad told me stories, just really awesome to know it was true! God bless our Vets! Without them the constitution is just paper!

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.
