    A SON'S LEGACY
    Mr. and Mrs. Edward Charity of 5000 2nd St. NW display the Silver Star, Bronze Star medal and Purple Heart won by their only son as he died in Vietnam combat Oct. 27.
    The posthumous awards, presented to the parents this week, cited 21-year-old Army Specialist Edward Charity Jr. for braving hostile fire to man a machine gun after his 101st Airborne unit was ambushed in an open rice field. He was fatally wounded in that action, and was buried Nov. 3 in Arlington Cemetery.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Edward Charity 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.

    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

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.
