    Bob, you were a class mate of mine at Poca. I can still see you walking down the hall and your beautiful smile. Always smiled. I moved to Chas. our Soph. year and was never again to see you. I found out in 2013 while looking at the Poca High school web site that you died in Viet Nam in 1967. I also served in VN in 1970-71. By the grace of God, I made it back. So many heroes never came back home to their families. I thank God everyday for the blessings I have that so many will not experience. I thank you for your service and I ask for God's blessings for your family. Thank you. Until we meet again

    Dear PFC Robert Lee Burdette, 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

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
