    Jimmy I miss you everyday. I used to ride my bike up to the cemetary to talk to you. Even though you used to chase me with snakes on sticks, I always loved you. You were more of a brother to me instead of a cousin. I remember the day I was told you were killed. I had just come back from a basketball game in Tioga Center. Still miss and love you. Thank you for your service, I just wished it hadn't taken your life.

    I was 12 years old, when I remember my father opening the porch door and calling my oldest brother into the house. After a few minutes my brother came back out, placing his head against the side of the house. Instinctively me and my other brothers knew something was wrong......we put our arms around our big brother as he wept. That was the day we learned of Jim's death. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for my freedom. I am eternally grateful, and as long as I am breathing I will never forget.

    Dear PFC James Leon Zimmer, 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

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
