Tribute planned

DMVA

The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs wants to help pay tribute to all of the men and women from Pennsylvania who died as a result of the Vietnam War.

For the past two years, the DMVA has partnered with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund in Washington, D.C. to find a photo of every Pennsylvanian whose name appears on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall – commonly referred to as The Wall.

The VVMF is posting the photos on a virtual Wall of Faces to put a face and a story to every name, allowing these Vietnam veterans to be honored by family, friends and others from around the world. They are currently down to finding 65 photos.

A list with additional information on each person can be found by going to www.veterans.pa.gov (click on Wall of Faces).

Instructions on how to submit a photo can be found at http://www.vvmf.org/how-to-submit. To view the virtual Wall of Faces, go to www.vvmf.org/Wall-of-Faces.
