  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/10/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Golguis Colon-Rodriguez, 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

  • Forever Remembered

    Posted on 3/19/11 - by (Pachy Torres) on behalf of Maria Colon-Fonseca (sister)
    Broken hearts and shattered dreams... Life torn apart at its seams... Hearts and minds in pain and sorrow... Missing you more today, tomorrow... Time can't heal and words won't mend... The loss we feel at this sad end... However long till we meet again... You'll be remembered, but until then... We wait with hope within in our hearts... We'll be together, no more to part..... .....Maria

    I carry your memory in my heart from that tragic day when we found out that you had fallen. I live each day knowing that it's because of 'Soldiers' like you that I live on in freedom.
    I will never forget the sacrifice you paid for me.
    Thank you 'Tio' ... someday I will tell you in person ...

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.
