    I wore a M.I.A. bracelet with his name on it, for so many years and prayed everyday. I will never forget this man as long as I live. I honor him always. I am 57 and real happy to finally see a face to the name. I Thank him so much for his service. God Bless him and his family!

  • Yet another bracelet

    Posted on 4/8/16 - by Suzanne Picott
    I wore mine throughout the 1960-70s. When my daughter visited the Vietnam Memorial, they could not give her any information. Tomor r ow, the bracelet will go to my grandaughter's AP US History, as they are studying that period in class. I'll attach the bio for her so she can share with the kids. And dearest family of Charlie, I am so sorry there was never anymore information. He's been in my heart for almost 50 years now.

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.

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.
