Vietnam veterans need photos of about 400 more fallen service members to complete their virtual memo

A virtual Vietnam War memorial is nearing completion, and you can help.

The Vietnam Veteran Memorial Fund (VVMF) is searching for photos of five Columbus, Georgia, Vietnam War casualties.

The campaign, which can be viewed at vvmf.org/Wall-of-Faces, features a page dedicated to honoring and remembering every person whose name is inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. As of Thursday, the campaign has matched 1,585 pictures with Georgia veterans, and only 23 names from the Peach State remain without a photo, according to VVMF Vice President of Programs and Communications Heidi Zimmerman.


The five from Columbus are:

Pvt. Emmitt Mays, Jr. (born February 8, 1946; died April 11, 1966)

Sgt. Henry Pasley (born February 2, 1926; died January 25, 1966)

Staff Sgt. Howard Williams (born January 18, 1941; died February 20, 1968)

Sgt. 1st Class Charles Wood (born October 25, 1931; died February 10, 1968)

Cpl. James Wright (born August 24, 1946; died August 11, 1966)
