  • You are remembered and honored

    I am honored to have found Gregory's photo for the Wall of Faces here in the 1968 Dillard High School yearbook. While in Ft.Lauderdale, I also visited his grave at Sunset Memorial Gardens, only to learn that his grave is unmarked yet lies near his mother's grave. I am especially proud of the Vietnam veterans who immediately took action to file the documents needed to have the marker made and installed. Rest in peace, Gregory...you are not forgotten.

  • THANKS

    Dear PFC Gregory Carter,
    I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces is missing yours. Thanks for being a Rifleman. Tomorrow is your 48th anniversary, sigh. Tomorrow is actually Columbus Day, and we remember those of you who served. 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.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Gregory Carter, 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

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Posted on 11/9/05 - by Bob Ross
    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    Mary Frye – 1932

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.
