    Dear PVT Timothy John Carolan, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter
  • Remembering from long ago

    I lived on Moody across the street from the Carolans from 1949 to 1957. Tim and I were the same age and often played together before I moved to California. I remember him as a very quiet, reserved, and kind little boy (as opposed to those boisterous brothers Michael and Denny!!---my brother Danny was the same age as Denny). I remember his parents, Irene and Jack. I spent much time at their home as a child.
    I first knew of his death when I visited the Memorial in D.C. I was so moved, and a flood of memories came pouring back. I wish I'd had time to know you better, Tim, before your untimely death. Mary Jo

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
