Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/23/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear SP4 Martin W Weleski III, 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

My cousinPosted on 2/26/07 - by anonymous firstname.lastname@example.orgI was 7 years old when my cousin "Billy" died. I mainly remember being startled at the 21-gun salute and the soldiers folding the flag draped over his coffin. Today, I realize the dignity with which Bill's parents and siblings dealt with his loss. Bill's death, as well as that dignity in sorrow, taught me a lot. I will say a prayer for all the families of KIA Vietnam servicemen and women, because I know they must still grieve even after 35 years.MORE

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.
