‘Faces Never Forgotten’ Program needs Community’s Help

In an effort to further preserve the legacy of those who sacrificed all in Vietnam, Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) is committed to finding a photo to go with each of the more than 58,000 names on The Wall.

To date, approximately 43,000 photos have been collected. The Wall of Faces allows family and friends to share memories, post pictures and connect with each other.

Putting a face with a name changes the whole dynamic of the Wall. It will preserve the legacy of service of our Fallen Heroes. The stories and sacrifice of those who were killed in action will never be forgotten.

There are 38 names of Fallen Warriors from El Paso County who have no information logged into the program. If anyone is a relative, friend, or classmate of anyone on the list, please contact Janna Hoehn

Even if you do not have a photo but know which high school any of them attended, it would be helpful.

The Never Forgotten program was created to assist in locating photos or information for names who have not been logged into the virtual wall.

All of the photos will be submitted to the Wall of Faces online memorial at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund as well as in the future Education Center adjacent to the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C.
