    Dana was my room mate in flight school. Candidates Brann, Cheatham and Day we all soloed on the same day. Jim Cheatham and I went to Korea Dana went to Vietnam Nam. I was flying on the DMZ when ops radioed to stop in hq before returning to my platoon. I was then directed to Jim C's office where he advised me of Dana's loss. He will always live in my heart and life as my youngest daughter is named for him "Dana Day". For the young lady who did not know his MOS 05B. Thank you all for remembering my classmate and friend. Bless you all .James Day Col USA retired

    Dear Warrant Officer,
    Thank you for your service. I did not find your MOS, but only know you are Army. Independence Day is approaching, and it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I remember Dana Brann every Memorial Day. My family lived next to Dana and family in Boxford, Mass in the 1950's. I have memories of playing with my brother and Dana: we played Davey Crocket while wearing our raccoon tail hats. We moved away; I was 13 when my mom told me Dana was killed in action in Vietnam. Many years later I found his name on the traveling Wall. Thank you, Dana for your service and ultimate sacrifice . I will never forget you.

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear WO Dana E Brann, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

    Dana and I were friends in high school. I went off to college with a college defermment and Dana went into the military. I will always remember him. He had such a nice smile and pleasant personality. Wish we could have been friends longer.

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.
