    Dear LTC Donald Burnham,
    Thank you for your service as a Helicopter Pilot with the 1st Cavalry. You are still MIA.
    PLEASE COME HOME - YOU BELONG HERE.
    It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Be at peace with the angels.

    Thinking of you this day, have been contacted by someone whose grandfather wore a MIA bracelet with your name on it.
    I am getting older by the day but you remain young in my mind. I will never forget you. Love you still, Fran

  • An American Hero Remembered Tonight

    Posted on 2/2/16 - by Peter John Harrington pjharrington@verizon.net
    Tonight I am thinking of you tonight Mr. Burnham. You are not forgotten. No matter how much time passes you will always be remembered. I never knew you. I was not alive when the War took place. I have never been to Alabama in my life but I love my country and I truly appreciate what we have. When I look at my 8 month old daughter I know it is because of brave men like you that we as Americans can appreciate such freedoms. I will be thinking of you when I attend my regular 10:30AM Sunday mass at St. Brigid of Kildare. God Bless America and God Bless this American Hero.

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.
