    Dear LCPL Dennis Weldon Wellmann, 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

    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Dennis.

    I was 5 years old when Denny Wellmann left our small Minnesota community and joined the Marines. When I was 6, I remember the day word spread through town that Denny had died in Vietnam. His picture was in the local paper and I have never forgotten his name or his face. As an adult, I visited the Vietnam Memorial and I found Denny's name on the wall. I just visited the the Virtual Wall website for the first time this week and found that no picture was available on Denny's profile, so I contacted the local paper,

    the Hanska Herald. Less than 24 hours after my request they sent me the scanned photo which I am sending on to you.

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
