    Dear Sgt Bruce Coley,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. December is almost gone, along with all the preparations. It is the 5th 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.

    I remember you. We were in the same platoon, different squads, but same platoon. I liked you, you were a friend. I will always remember you. Rest In Peace, you deserve more than words can say. I want to say more, but I find I am unable to.

    I can't believe it's almost 46 yrs. since we lost you. Like most Brothers growing up,all we did was fight with each other. We always hated it when Ma made one of us take you along wherever we was going. How different things would have been had we known we would lose you at such a young age. We never got to tell you how much we love you. We never got to Hug you. You learn as you get older what a Brother really means to you. For years now Russ and I talk every Sunday morning for two hours. Years ago he sent me your Vietnam pictures and when Ma died, he passed on your flag to me. We never forgot you. Well Bruce,somewhere down that road,Russ & I are going to tell you how much we missed you and we are going to get that Hug. RIP Brother, Steve & Russ

    Dear SGT Bruce Edward Coley, 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

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
