    We never saw one another again after you left for Vietnam. I think of you often, with love.

    Dear 1LT Mark Constant Chenis, 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

    Lt Chenis I only knew you for a few months as I was in OPS 352nd TFS just before you were transfered to 614th TFS but I will always remember the day that your plane went down. God Bless You & thanks for serving our country.

    My name is Jeremy Steffen. I am from a suburban part of central Illinois and attend Gridley High School. I am recently a sophomore and am in a World History class. Our class was recently given the challenge to write remembrances for the fallen soldiers that died in Vietnam if they did not previously have them. Thank you for serving in our armed forces and protecting our country. God bless.

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.
