    Dear PFC Robert Cannon,
    Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. It is another 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 Bobby

    While we never met, I feel like I know you. You and my Dad were cousins, and he carried your picture in his wallet until he died. I now have your picture. How young you were, and so very brave. Your Mom used to tell me stories about you whenever we talked. I think of you every time I see a picture of a sailor, soldier, airman who has passed. I pray that those of us who are left make you proud, that we live our lives fully in a measure of respect for you and all others who have given their lives. May the Lord be with you.

    I never had the chance to meet my Uncle Bobby, but I was blessed to grow up learning about him from my father, uncle, grandparents, and family. I have always felt he was close to us. I am honored to tell my daughter of her great Uncle and his service to our country. Thank you Uncle Bobby for selflessly serving our country. You are loved and missed. I am so glad both Grandma and Grandpa are with you now.

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.
