Special to The Standard
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation project “Faces Never Forgotten” needs help obtaining missing photos of Vietnam veterans from Alabama. These photos will help complete an electronic “Wall of Faces” in the new education center at the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
Would you please help us locate a photo of each soldier? If there is a soldier missing from your area, perhaps they attended one of your schools and you have a photo in your newspaper archive? We recommend that you publish ads or editorial content, seeking help from readers in reaching anyone who may have a photo of a soldier. If there are many soldiers in your area that have yet to be identified, perhaps the effort could be part of an advertising page or special section.
