REMEMBRANCES

  • after 50 years

    Eleanor, seeing your face after 50 years brings back so many memories of your humor, dedication, beauty and commitment to treating others with kindness and generosity. I have regretted often breaking our engagement. It seems unfair that you were taken so early in your promising life. I hope to see you again in Heaven and thank you for being part of my life.

    I have been checking names and faces on The Wall lately with different search results. I am checking out the names and faces of my home state New Jersey. Imagine my surprise to find another lady who served in Vietnam! I especially like your first name (Eleanor - my late mother's name; she passed away in 2004 from cancer at 66).
    Thank you for your service and your sacrifice, Captain Alexander! You will ALWAYS be remembered.

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.
