    Richie I always remember you, you were the first person I knew who died in Vietnam. I went to school with your brother Billy and remember where you lived on Woodycrest. I'm writing this today because my son visited the wall today and asked if I knew anyone there, I hope he found you if not I know they felt for all of you. RIP FRIEND

    I was a little girl when you passed my dearest Uncle Richie. I have never forgotten you. I have not forgotten how I begged my parents to let me go to your funeral and the heart ache I bear all these years not being able to go. Perhaps it is for a reason...never to say good bye.. only to hold you, hug you and kiss you hello again some day. I miss you. Thank you for your ultimate sacrifice. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS...My Uncle, My hero

    Dear PFC Richard Henry Tissier, 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

    I didn't know Richard well, but he was in one of my classes at Taft High School. He was a handsome, quiet, nice guy that was kind to everyone. I do remember what a talented artist he was. You will never be forgotten. RIP Rich.

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
