    Dear PFC Frank Enzer Weiss, 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

    Hi little brother,
    I know that you are enjoying yourself in Heaven
    with Mom,Dad,Jim, and all the rest of our relatives up there. Especially Jim with all his pranks.
    When I shared Thanksgiving Dinner with you in 1967, I was not ex-
    pecting that to be the last
    time I would see you alive.
    I tried to have you sent
    to Okinawa while I finished
    my 4 remaining months inland. However, the government sent me back in-
    stead. I was assigned to the casualty post office.
    I received word of your
    death on 28 March 1968, 10
    days after you were killed.
    I requested the Honor of
    escorting your body home and the Colonel said it was
    an unusual request, but for
    me to check with the liason
    officer at Edwards AFB when
    I landed, and he would see
    what strings he could pull.
    Upon arrival at Edwards,
    I was told to report to
    Philadelphia Naval Base,
    Escort Barracks. I was then
    sent to Dover, De. to pick
    up your body.
    I brought your body back
    to Philadelphia and caught a plane to Pittsburgh, Pa.,
    where the funeral home picked you up and brought
    you to Indiana, Pa. for burial.
    In closing, I want to say that I am so very proud
    of you for making the ulti-
    mate sacrifice of your life
    but I wish it didn't have
    to be that way. Those of the family who are still
    living, will never forget
    you and the service you did
    for your country. We look
    forward to seeing you again
    when we can spend all eternity together.
    Your Older Brother,
    PETE

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.

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.
