  • First friend to Die, In Veit Nam

    Posted on 11/7/14 - by Ken c Weber
    GERRY was a upbeat, solid guy who was a high school buddy. Who had his life end in a WAR that was not too be excepted by the people who he is fighting for. I went to Viet Nam, about 4mon.later.But I had to go to Gerrys funeral. Don't ask why I just wanted to be there. Went AWOL. I couldn't go any other way. I left for the War, March 28 1968, I'm going to have a talk with him one day . GERRY that is . Never forget the fallen, & always Respect those who gave it All. And Gerrys life was to short . God had plans for Gerry, I'm sure. Be seeing ya, Gerry. RIP
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Gerald Wayne Ziy, 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

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
