    I was only 5 when you were taken away from us. I watched as your daughter grew up into a lovely young woman. I think of you often, wonder what kind of person you were and what would have been. I know you were the love of Aunt Kathleen's life. If some of you that see this post can you tell me of my uncle.

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
