    Dear CPL Alfred Eli Alvey Jr, 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.

    With respect, Sir

  • We didn't know...

    ...when we were so young and growing up in Uniontown, KY that there was a place so far away as Viet Nam and that you would die there. Time was so innocent then. You didn't deserve this. I wish you could have had a better life but God had a different plan.

    Did you know we were cousins? I didn't then.

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
