    I remember Tom from cruising the halls in high school. The pic here of him with the Vietnamese children seemed immediately fitting of a young man with a great smile revealing the person within.

    Remembering you this Memorial Day 2017. Peace.

    Cannot believe that 46 years has passed. You have never been forgotten. Visited the traveling Wall of Healing and was profoundly moved by the sheer volume of our loss as a nation. 58,296 lost men and women who had parents, siblings, wives, husbands, children and friends who loved them. There has never been a greater sense of loss as memorialized by the Wall. I will forever remember your laugh and the young man that I knew at St. James' Church.

    Dear SGT Thomas Judd Tyrell, 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

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.
