Those three men are part of the nearly 58,300 soldiers killed during that war that are part of the Faces Never Forgotten project at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The VVMF is seeking photos of 24,300 soldiers to help complete a new electronic display called “Wall of Faces.”
They already have “mug” photos of those killed from Hood County but are seeking photos of them with their favorite cars, going to the prom and just doing everyday activities.
“We want to tell the stories of each person on The Wall,” said Allyson Shaw, manager of communications and media relations with the VVMF.
If you have, or know of anyone who has, photos of any of the three men listed, please bring the photos by the Hood County News at 1501 S. Morgan St. You can e-mail digital photos to [email protected]
For more information call Nancy Pricer at 817-573-7066, ext. 257.
