  • Special Uncle

    Lee Roy was my mothers brother. He was the most special Uncle ever. He was young enough to be as close as a big brother. When we learned of his death, I was a senior in high school and I was crushed. The Vietnam war was in full swing in 1967. I would hear news daily on TV, but I don't think I ever believed in its impact until we lost this special man. My family has always had members involved in almost every war since WW!. We in the USA can never thank these soldiers and veterans enough for thei rbravery and commitment to keep us all free. Thanks Uncle Lee Roy , I still miss you after 50 years. You are never forgotten.

  • I knew Lee Roy in Hohenfels Germany

    I often went by the memorial and spent some time with him in Washington, DC and did not know about this site until recently. I was a young private when I met him in 1964 and he was a SP5. There were some very nice people assigned to that Hawk Site back then, but Lee Roy was special. I am glad that I got to know you buddy. I often wondered what happened to your family. God Bless you and keep you.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SSGT Lee Roy Hodges, 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

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.
