  • I was a kid but I remember this

    You were from the town I was living in. My daddy married you and your young bride. My daddy buried you when they brought you back. I went to your funeral. The entire town was there. There were so many people that they were standing all around the walls and out the doors. Your death made the first biggest impression on my life. Thank you for your service, Teddy. You will never be forgotten as long as me and my family are on earth.

    Dear SP5 Teddy Gene Whitton, 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

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
