  • Remembering an American Hero

    Posted on 1/15/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net

    Dear American Hero,

    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 (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)

    Just a note. After all these years, I still pause on 8/2 to remember the kid from Framingham. Carl, you are remembered.

  • I remember you Carl

    Posted on 12/14/99 - by Sam Robinson srkpr@mediaone.net
    Carl was a boy I went to school with in Framingham, Mass. He had a difficult time in school (as I remember) and left to join the Marines. I would meet up with Carl once before his death. He was home recovering from wounds. He was no longer the kid I remembered from school. He went back to Vietnam and was killed (I was told he stepped on a mine). I pray he didn't suffer.
    He was the first person I knew to be killed in Vietnam. I was in the Air Force at the time and would go to Vietnam myself in December of 68.
    I think of Carl often. On my one trip to the "Wall" I looked up his place on the wall. It made me cry.
    You are remembered Carl. God Bless

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.
