    Dear LCPL John Cabrini,
    Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. You died on my grandmother's anniversary. Say hi to her, her name is Civ. As another summer comes to an end, 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. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear LCPL John Richard Cabrini, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Never met, but always missed

    I never quite got to meet my uncle Johnny. My mom (his sister) was pregnant with me when he went to Vietnam. Ma told Uncle Johnny to take care of himself & he told her to take care of me. I've seen Uncle Johnny in pictures, been to his grave, seen his name on the Wall and heard stories of him. He came from a wonderful, loving family and he was the baby of that family. He has been loved much & missed much by all, including 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
