    Dear EM2 Franklin Canup,
    Thank you for your service as an Electrician's Mate 2nd Class. The wall states you are still MIA, but there is a burial site given here. I hope you are home. You need to be home. 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. Be at peace with the angels.

    I still have your POW MIA braclet from when you were first reported missing. I so wish that you had made it home so I could put it away. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SACRIFICE AND THAT OF YOUR FAMILY. I WAS ALSO IN THE NAVY BUT NEVER HAD TO GO TO WAR BUT MY HUSBAND DID. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR SERVICE AND FOR THE FINAL SACRIFICE THAT YOU MADE. WISH YOU WERE HERE TO READ THIS BUT GOD NEEDED ANOTHER HERO IN HEAVEN.

    Dear Em2 Franklin Harlee Canup Jr, Sir



    As a fellow North Carolinian, 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.



    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



    Curt Carter (son of Sgt. Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)

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.
