The Wall That Heals

Episode 2683 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast will feature a story about how the good people of Russellville, Kentucky are honoring their Vietnam Veterans. The featured story appeared on WBKO and was titled: Logan County Genealogical Society creating commemorative Vietnam Era book. It was submitted by William Battle, a multi-media journalist with WBKO.

In his story, Battle reported that the Logan County Genealogical Society is making a Vietnam-era commemorative book to go with the upcoming ‘Wall That Heals’ exhibit in Russellville June 6-9, 2024.

Denise Shoulders, the president of the Logan County Genealogical Society said this about the program; “We are looking for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice during that time and are on the wall. Those that came home and later passed and those that came home and are still with us. So, we want to include everybody if they served during that era.”

She added: “One of the big aspects of this project is because there are so many Vietnam veterans, but if there’s anybody else that’s on the wall that a family wants to include, we definitely want to include them as well.”

Anyone in the region is encouraged to submit the names of their veterans. Submissions can be made by a form that can be picked up from the archives in Russellville located at 278 West 4th Street or via email: logancokyarchives@gmail.com.

They will be taking the applications until June 9, 2024 with the book expected to be available for purchase later this summer.
