REMEMBRANCES

  • An Honorable Man

    Posted on 12/5/16 - by K Whitley
    Jerry was a conscientious objector who told me he could not turn his back on his country but could not kill, so he opted to serve as a medic. There were a number of conscientious objectors who served honorably in the Vietnam war. He contrasted so clearly with another "man" who was from Arkansas but said he "loathed the military," Bill Clinton. Each should be appropriately remembered.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/9/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SP4 Jerry Dean Charlton, 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

    Curt Carter

  • Your Angel Day

    Posted on 10/25/09 - by 60's Girl
    My mere words of “thank you" cannot express the way I really feel about
    your service to our country and the ultimate sacrifice that you made. But, I do most humbly thank you.

    Although others might feel that the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war, I am one American who does not feel this way. I believe that what you did for our country was not in vain, but has and will always be an influence for good for us today and for countless generations to come.

    Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing up for what was right and for paying the ultimate price.

    In your honor today on your Angel Day I leave this short poem for you:

    "There is not greater love than this.
    There is not a greater gift that can ever be given.
    To be willing to die, so another might live.
    There is not greater love than this.”
    ~ Steven Curtis Chapman

  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 2/18/04 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

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.
