Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund seeking pictures of local soldiers

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is searching for pictures of soldiers to be included in a new memorial project called “Faces Never Forgotten.”

The project features a Wall of Faces designed to pay tribute to every solider that died in Vietnam. It is an online interactive display, and people will also be able to view it at the new Education Center being built in Washington, D.C. Of the 58,000 soldiers killed in action in Vietnam, the Fund still needs 24,000 pictures to complete the wall.

The gallery, as it stands, can be viewed at www.vvmf.org/Wall-of-Faces/. By searching for a community, visitors can view photos of all of the soldiers from a particular area that were killed in Vietnam. The site also has the option to search specifically for soldiers who do not yet have a photo in the database, allowing visitors to see whether veterans they may know have already been included.

To submit a photo of a solider that does not yet have one, please mail it to:

New England Newspaper & Press Association

“Faces Never Forgotten”

370 Common St.

Dedham, MA 02026

For more information, please contact Megan Sherman at m.sherman@nenpa.com or (781) 320-8042.
