  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 5/14/16 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Freddie Lee Coffman, 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

  • A friend of my father

    Posted on 5/23/15 - by Dana Landacre
    Freddie was a friend of my father, Daniel Landacre, who was also drafted and served in Vietnam. I can easily recall the day my parents and I went to visit the wall. My father went to honor his comrades as well as find Freddie's name. He stood staring at his name for some time and I was actually able to capture a picture of my father's reflection in the wall where Freddie Coffman's name is engraved. I'm sure he was recalling fond memories of his friend at that time.

    WE WENT THROUGH BASIC AT FT KNOX AND THEN AIT AT TIGERLAND (FT POLK). HE WAS A GOOD FRIEND AND A GOOD SOLDIER. HE HAD AN INFANT SON BACK HOME THAT HE TALKED ABOUT ALL THE TIME. I TRIED TO TALK HIM INTO GOING TO NCO SCHOOL WITH ME BUT HE JUST WANTED TO GO AND GET IT OVER WITH SO HE COULD GET HOME. THE MONTH BEFORE I LEFT FOR NAM I SAW HIS PICTURE IN LIFE MAGAZINE. HE HAD ONLY LASTED A FEW SHORT MONTHS. WE SPENT MANY HOURS LAYING ON OUR BUNKS TALKING ABOUT HOME. THERE HASN'T BEEN A WEEK GO BY IN MY LIFE SINCE THEN THAT I HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT MY FRIEND FREDDIE.

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.
