    It was 47 yrs. ago today we walked into that ambush and I've never forgotten it. RIP and guard the gates of heaven until I get there.

    Dear LCPL Edward William Charles, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    My Mother your cousin (Ethel) and you grew up together in Arkansas, she told me about you and I have never forgotten. When I went to Howard University in Washington DC I went to the wall and saw your name. One day I will bring my family to your grave site to place flower there. Sorry we never got to me, One day we will.

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
