    Dear SSGT Pearl Bush, 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

    Curt Carter

  • Henry Clark remembers (on the Kham Duc group)

    Henry Clark: He told me to go help the others down in the Ammo Dump and was doing my job as the fire mission receptor. All hell broke loose and when we come out of the Ammo Dump the guys were running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off. When I finally found SSG Bush he was in such bad shape I knew he wasn't going to make it. He was trying to crawl and calling for his Mom. Myself and another one of my gun mates carried him over to where they had all the KIAs and wounded so they could be picked up. As soon as we got him over there I sat down on the ground and held His head
    On my lap he still tried to call his Mom but I knew he was gone. He had done my job and he got my ticket out. I still have a resentment that he took my place and lost his life. It should have been me.

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.
