    Dear CWO Matt John Wodarczyk, 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

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    Mary Frye – 1932

  • High Flight

    Posted on 8/3/03 - by Renee' Brown
    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth,And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings,Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung.High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long, delirious burning blue,I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,Where never lark, or even eagle flew.And, while silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God........Pilot Officer John G. McGee, Jr., KIA WW2.................... Matt was in my wedding in 1969 when I married one of his flight school friends at Hunter-Stewart in Savannah, Georgia, after graduation from flight school. Have never forgotten you or your family Matt. I still have the pictures of my wedding. May you rest in peace always. God grant us peace in our world.

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
