    DEAR CPL. ALLEN,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A MARINE GRUNT. I WISH I KNEW WHO WERE IN THIS PHOTO.
    MY SON WENT TO COLLEGE IN WORCHESTER - HOLY CROSS. HE WAS ON A TEAM THAT REBUILD HOUSES FOR PEOPLE WHO WORKED BUT STILL COULD NOT OWN A HOME. IT IS A GOOD AREA.
    REST IN PEACE AND SEMPER FI.

  • Served Together

    Posted on 9/8/14 - by Frank Devaney (SgtMaj - Ret)
    I was CAP leader of 1-1-2 at the time of this action. Unfortunately, I was in TamKy for a meeting when this occurred. As adjoining CAPs, Frank and I worked closely coordinating various activities. He talked frequently of his excitement of meeting his daughter for the first time. The photo was taken Jan 7, 1970 after an action at 1-1-3s location.

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Posted on 1/15/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net

    Dear CPL Francis Monroe Allen Jr, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    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 www.buildthecenter.org.
