    Dear Cpl Broeffle,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Frankie was also killed in Quang Tri; say hi to him. Independence Day just passed, and it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear CPL Ivan Clifford Broeffle, 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 am a reporter with the Atikokan Progress newspaper in Atikokan, Ontario, Canada where Ivan Broeffle grew up and lived until his teens. I wrote this article in November 2009, based on interviews with two of Ivan's sisters and a childhood acquaintance. I hope you will consider adding the article to aid in the remembrance of Ivan.

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
