    Mike "Moke" who swam like a fish and worked like a dog
    it was a n honor and fun to work at the Martinez pool
    summer of '58, then to watch you set records all the way thru
    Annapolis - missing '64 Olympics by a "fin"
    What a surprise to see you across the bar in SanDiego in 1968
    You were headed on 2nd tour and me on first to Viet Nam.
    We shared a few good times in Saigon and San Fran Bay area
    after we returned in 1969..

    Sorry we didn't see each other much after that.

    You'll always be remembered. as you were in the USNA Alumni Mag recently - by all who knew you. A SEAL, an American,
    and one of the finest human beings most of knew..

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
