    I remember Rick in the 8th grade at So. Jr. H.S.Weymouth Always had a big smile...thats what I remember most. As a vet back then we weren't appreciated...today its different. It would have been nice for you to see and appreciate your sacrifice.

    Hey Rick, today is Memorial Day, there is special remembrance for those who died in service to our country.

    I know what we went through together and the tragic circumstances of your death. Its funny, you didnt live to see how badly we were treated for years after coming home. Now they cant thank us enough, I'm a little bitter about it now, but better late than never I guess.

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.
