    I didn't know you, but you and I were the same age on the day that you died. I had been married 3 months in March 1969, my life was just beginning. I thank you, and your family, for the service you gave me and this country.

    Dear SGT Chester H Terry Jr, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    My dad SGT Jimmie Newcomb HHC 4/39th often spoke of you. He told me what had occured leading up to your death, and the retribution that was sought after your death.

    He would get a tear in his eye and his voice would crack as he spoke of you. Rest In Peach Hard Core Recondo

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.
