The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs 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, Washington, D.C., to find a photo of every Pennsylvanian whose name appears on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

The VVMF is 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 down to finding 65 photos.

A list with additional information on each person can be found at Click on Wall of Faces.
