Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund seeks Veteran photos
09/23/2015 - The old saying is “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) needs your help to put a face with each of the 58,307 names listed on The Wall. Pictures collected so far are online on The Wall of Faces where family and friends can leave remembrances, and will be displayed permanently in the future Education Center at The Wall. Each “face” is a story of a life cut short that is to be remembered and honored. VVMF is committed to finding a photo to go with every name on The Wall to further preserve the legacy of those who sacrificed all in Vietnam.
Since 2009, VVMF’s Faces Never Forgotten photo collection campaign has received more than 42,000, but organizers realize it will get harder as the number remaining dwindles.
If you have a picture of a loved one or fellow Veteran whose name is on The Wall, please help VVMF honor these individuals by putting a face with a name. Not sure if there is already a photo posted? Just search the Wall of Faces by name to check. Regardless of whether or not VVMF has a photo of the individual already, multiple photos are encouraged.
Volunteers all across the nation have been instrumental in helping find photos. read more>>>
