Help find Vietnam vets’ photos
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation invites help from the public with its “Faces Never Forgotten” project.
The foundation is trying to locate photos of all 58,286 soldiers listed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., by Nov. 11, 2014. These will be displayed on an electronic “Wall of Faces” in a new Education Center to be built near the memorial. There are more than 24,000 photos still to be found. Of those, 1,426 are from Texas. Visit http://bit.ly/1g8P7XI to view the list, complete with name, county, hometown, date of birth, and more.
Photos can be submitted online at http://bit.ly/1sS2wpv. Send copies of photos -- 8-inch-by-10-inch glossy preferred -- with the photo submission form (available online) to: Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Attn: Call for Photos, 2600 Virginia Avenue, NW Suite 104, Washington, D.C. 20037.
