    To my beloved cousin:

    I was eleven years old when you were killed in Vietnam. It took me until 2010 to find you. You have been on my mind even though I was very young. I love you and I wish things were different, but the Lord had other plans.
  • I miss you...

    As a fellow Buckeye, I say "THANK YOU"

    As a Veteran, I say "JOB WELL DONE"

    As an American, "YOUR DEATH WAS NOT IN VAIN"

    And as a Believer, "YOUR SPIRIT IS ALIVE AND STRONG"

    Again, thank you for your courageous service, contribution, and extreme sacrifice given to this great country of ours! PEACE MY FRIEND

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
