Vietnam Wall.....All the Names are Here!

A dear Friend shared this with me.
My heart bleeds for these heros and their families.

Vietnam Wall

First click on a state.  When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.

Then click on their names.  It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.

This really is an amazing web site.  Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.  I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.

The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes.  Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.

Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.

I have many friends that died in the Vietnam Confilict.  I was so sad to see their names listed on the Wall.

Hi Carol... amazingly enough I'd read most of these posts, except for the one about the virtual Viet Nam wall. I remember how emotional I was the first time I saw that monument in Washington, DC, this having been the war of my generation. Still moves me and the virtual wall is finally something good to recognize the heros that were spit on so many years ago.

I would like to see one of these for World War 11.  My Father fought in that war.

Hello Ginger - perhaps because Vietnam is my generation's war, but I find the memorial in DC extremely moving. This virtual wall was new to me; I found a high school classmate here.

I had no idea that webpage existed.  I found the name of one of my close friends from high school days.  He was a couple grades ahead of me, but was very active in the youth group at our church.  He is Staff Sergeant, Grant Highsmith.  When I checked the details, it said he died from "Ground Casualty" - "Accidental Homicide."  I'm assuming that means "Friendly Fire."

Grant was a really serious but kind hearted guy.  So many of those guys were taken from us, so very early in life!

Thank you so much for sharing this.  My father served in the Air Force during that time and we lost friends during that aweful war.  Thankfully, my dad was never directly deployed over there.  He was a test pilot and later involved in pilot recovery systems and techniques.  Helped to save many of our pilots with his projects and research.

I know how you feel. It has been very touching to see all the names of the wonderful young men and women that died during that conflict.
