    Dear PFC Reinaldo Carrasquillo-Soltero,
    I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces needs yours. Thanks for being an Antitank Assaultman. 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 strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear PFC Reinaldo Carrasquillo-Soltero, 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

  • Joy and Laughter Remembered

    I lived down the street from Ray and his brother Felipe. I remember Ray as if it were yesterday. There was always laughter surrounding Ray because he was so funny. The last time I saw him was when he was home on leave from boot camp (I think). He and his 2 buddies (both kids from the neighborhood) came to over to see me. I was all of 15 or 16. How handsome Ray looked in his uniform! It struck me at the time how the skinny boy who used to tease me was gone and in his place now was a serious young man. I never saw him again, but I will never forget him. I am a 5th grade teacher in NYC and every Veterans Day and Memorial Day I tell my class about Ray and the things he did to make us all laugh and how this very young man made the ultimate sacrifice. His death was a tragedy, but his life was like a little sunshine for everyone he encountered. The world became a poorer place when it lost Ray!

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
