    Dear CPL Donald Eugene Yearout, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I had never met Donald and honestly never even knew he existed until I did this research assignment, but I couldn't have asked for a better hero to write about. His sacrifice, among all the others, in the Vietnam War means everything to me. It remind me that there are still real heroes and good people out there who know what it means to sacrifice. This gives me hope and the feeling of safety. My condolences to all who lost him that day.

    To the absolute best high-school sweetheart any girl could ever have - Donnie you are always in my prayers and heart. And just as you predicted you didn't make it to 21 - I'm so very sorry. You will always have my love.

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
