    Dear PFC Pedro Cancel,
    Thank you for your service as a Quartermaster Supply Specialist. You were born on the anniversary of my grandmother's passing. Say hi to her in heaven, her name is Civ. Today is the first day of autumn, and time has passed since this war. 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 Brother up in Heaven,
    I think of u often and still cherish my fond memories of you picking me up on your shoulders and carrying me into the house every time you came home on a leave! I still remember the pencils you sent from Vietnam which I used each and every one. I wish you were here and I miss you so much! But I know you are up in Heaven having a great time with Mom and Dad and family and friends and being blessed with God's Grace.
    Thank you so much dear brother for your love and service! You were called for duty at such a young age and your life was taken and sacrificed for the sake of freedom (which I question in my mind "how free are we really"? But I'll come back to that another day).
    Happy 4th of July dear brother, I could just imagine the display of fireworks God has planned for all the fallen soldiers (heroes)!
    Rest in peace,
    Love you always, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooo

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort tyou.

    Dear PFC Pedro O Cancel, 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

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
