  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/2/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SP4 Efren Carmona, 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

    I am part of the Pinal County Veteran Memorial Foundation. Pinal County has selected Casa Grande, AZ to place a memorial for all fallen soldiers in all wars. We are trying to notify family members to let them know that we are doing this as well as needing their help in making sure we have the correct spelling of names, dates, etc. If you have any photos, stories or Letters that you would like to share we will also be placing a Kiosk near the Memorial. Please notify me at if you have any questions. Thank you for your help. Nancy

  • My best friend in Vietnam

    I have pictures and movies(If they survived) of Efren. We were best friends. We talked about going to college together when we got out. Sorry I waited so long to do this. The war is something I don't like to remember. Efren made me laugh and I made him laugh. He was a great person I will never forget. I tried to make contact with relatives a couple of years ago with no luck. Maybe his remaining family or relatives will contact me by email. I'm waiting!
  • Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

    Posted on 5/4/10 - by
    A portion of Sepulveda Boulevard/State Highway Route 1 in El Segundo near Los Angeles International Airport has been dedicated to the residents of Los Angeles County who served in Vietnam. This section of highway is now designated the Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway. Adopted by the California State Legislature in 2000, the highway honors the more than 350,000 California veterans who served in the Vietnam War, including the 5,822 killed or missing in action. Los Angeles County has the largest number of Vietnam veterans in California and 1,857 of its residents were killed or missing in action during that war. This memorial corridor provides a fitting and proper way for the residents of Los Angeles County to express their gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices these Vietnam veterans have made for their country.

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
