Pictures from the Wall of Faces Vietnam Memorial.

This episode is all about honoring Vietnam Veterans. They are still looking for photos for the Wall of Faces in Washington DC. The Wall of Faces is a project where the organizers are seeking to procure an image of every person whose name is on the Vietnam War Memorial Wall. There are more than 58,000 names on the Wall and so far more than 41,000 images have been secured. The Fayetteville Observer is looking for 30 photos of Cumberland County Vietnam Veterans. Their names will be listed below along with links to the email of Jim Reece who is heading up the Cumberland County search and to the Wall of Faces website. Please do what you can to help locate these pictures or for that matter a picture of any veteran on the wall.

I am also offering to give away a chapter of my upcoming book Conversations With Vietnam Heroes. Steve Suttles was a Marine sniper in Vietnam and my conversation was exciting and informative. That’s the chapter I am offering to you at no cost. You can get a preview of my exciting new book.
