Photos of fallen S.C. Vietnam vets sought

  • Tuesday, May 27, 2014


The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation (VVMF) project “Faces Never Forgotten” needs help obtaining missing photos of Vietnam veterans from South Carolina killed in that war. These photos will help complete an electronic “Wall of Faces” in the new education center at the Vietnam Memorial Wall and online.

The names of the 896 South Carolinians who were killed in the Vietnam War are engraved for history on the Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. The Memorial Foundation is now working to add faces to those names by collecting photographs of all who died fighting in the Vietnam War. There are 578 missing photos from South Carolina.

Relatives and friends of veterans killed in the war can add photos online or by mail. For details, visit www.vvmf.org/how-to-submit. The VVMF website also has names of all fallen Vietnam veterans at www.vvmf.org/wall-of-faces.
