One of my closest friendsPosted on 9/30/16 - by Bart NatoliHi Jimmy ( Reese )MORE
The reason that I put the word Reese in parentheses is that was his nick name back in the 60's We were young guys around 19 years old when we both were drafted in 1966 I went to Alaska, and Jimmy went to Nam.
we kept in touch writing to each other until I received a letter back that I had written to him marked recipient deceased, I still have all the letters that we wrote to each other some 50 years ago.
I have never forgotten my friend and to this day read his letters that he wrote to me, they were full all our hopes and dreams.
God rest your soul.
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 1/28/14 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear PFC Vincent James Weedo Jr, sirMORE
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

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.
