  • I wish I could've known you dad...

    Posted on 5/2/16 - by melodyalexander2012@gmail.com
    Hi dad, this is your daughter, Melody. You were killed when i was only about 3 years old, so unfortunately I never got the chance to know you. I've spent my whole life missing you & wishing I could've known you. I'm your only child, and my mom always told me how much you loved me and how you used to carry me around with you all over the place when I was born. I'm now 51 years old, married to a wonderful man; who is actually a veteran himself. I have 3 wonderful children & 2 grandchildren. I wish I could've known you, I love you dad.
    Your daughter, Melody Turner Alexander

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Arthur Travis Turner, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

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.
