    Dear Cpl James Coleman,
    I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces needs yours. Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. December is almost gone, along with all the preparations. It is the 4th Day of Christmas. It is so important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CPL James Ivory Coleman, 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

    I've heard many times of the honor and bravery that you and your squad brothers exhibited on Oct 20, 1969. You served along side my father. Although I did not know you personally, I feel a connection to you. My friend, Garry Owen.

    If you served with this Soldier, please contact me. I'd appreciate hearing your story.

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.
