    Dave I keep missing you still Brother. I will never forget that night. Holding you in my arms until you passed. It was a bad night. Its been almost 50 years now and I still keep re/playing it over and over. I should have told them No Way. Will be seeing you in a few years my Brother. Keep the beer cold.

    Photo was taken from the historic book “THE FACES BEHIND THE NAMES - The Vietnam War” with the permission of author Don Ward. Thank you Mr. Ward.

    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in peace and honor Dave.

    Dear SGT David Alan Younk, 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

    As part of the Gridley High School Posting Project I am leaving remembrances for our fallen heroes of the Vietnam War. To all who read this, may you always remember and appreciate those who gave their lives to preserve us. We owe you soldiers for standing strong against criticism from your own side, and fighting for a greater cause, because it’s what had to be done. You are not forgotten, and will always be held in high esteem.

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
