Tribute planned

DMVA

The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) 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 (VVMF) 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 staff are 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 in need of just 65 photos.

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

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