  • Old roommate

    Richard, another fellow and I were roommates at St. Christopher's. He was brilliant and had a dry sense of humor. I laugh when I think how he use to confound the dorm(cottage) bully. The bully would try to provoke Richard, but Richard would almost always have a comeback that slayed that guy. Richard was in no way athletic and would have not stood a chance against this jerk, but Richard was not intimidated. He was an extraordinary person.

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.
