    Always remember that night. We here hit at 2:00am. Sappers came in. We got several but one got to your 4.2 mortar pit. You were there with a LRRP, Tim Howard.Time saw the sapper go in took him down when he went out. you statyed with your men be be sure they were out. The charge blew. You caught most of it also with the reset of the ammo in the bunker. Wish I could have do more. We go two but not the one who go you. The Chaplin came in the morning with a mule and we looked you onto it with Tim and Tex.
    God bless you and rest in peace.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT William John Allen, 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

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
