    I never had the opportunity to meet my uncle as he died before I was born. Through my father and other family members I've had the opportunity to learn about him, his character and the person he was. My father thought enough of him that he named me after his beloved brother. He is missed and remembered by all of his family.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.
  • My Uncle

    Mario was my Uncle and my Moms baby brother. I remember that beautiful August summer day when Uncle Mario stopped at our house to say good bye to my Mom before he left to Vietnam. My Uncle looked so handsome and proud. I remember my Mom was very worried and sad that her baby brother was leaving to go serve his country that he loved. She prayed for him and when she got the news that he was killed the day after my 10th birthday she was devastated. We will always remember and never forget you Uncle.

    Dear PFC Mario Alvarez Cisneros, 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

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.

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
