Public Encouraged to Submit Photos for Vietnam Veteran “Faces Never Forgotten” Initiative

1vvmf_optHarrisburg, PA – The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA), in partnership with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Inc. (VVMF), is hoping to locate more than 600 photos of Pennsylvanians who sacrificed their lives in the Vietnam War.

“As part of DMVA’s participation in the 50th anniversary of the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, we have partnered with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund to encourage the public to support their “Faces Never Forgotten” campaign,” said Maj. Gen. James R. Joseph, adjutant general of Pennsylvania and a Vietnam Veteran. “If you have a picture of a loved one or fellow veteran whose name is inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., please help us honor these individuals by putting a face with a name.”

The VVMF is trying to collect photos for each of the 58,307 men and women whose names are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. – better known as The Wall – so that they can keep the legacies of these service members alive for future generations. Since the photo campaign was launched in October 2009, VVMF has located photos for approximately 41,000 of the names inscribed on the memorial. Of the 3,148 service members from Pennsylvania whose names are on The Wall, 606 photos are still needed.

Visit the DMVA website for a complete list of Pennsylvania service members whose photos are needed. For information about how to add a photograph to the collection visit the VVMF website.
