Help requested for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation project “Faces Never Forgotten”

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation project, “Faces Never Forgotten,” needs help obtaining missing photos of Vietnam veterans from Kansas.

These photos will help complete an electronic “Wall of Faces” in the new education center at the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.

We at the Sentinel-Times want to help locate family members or friends of those listed below who can provide a photo of the soldier.

If you have a picture and can mail it to our newspaper or drop it by our office, at 511 S. Main, Galena, KS 66739 or email to we’ll create an electronic file and make sure it gets to the right place.

You may view the gallery in progress at The wall is designed as a moving tribute to fallen soldiers from your area.

We want to get the photos to VVMF by Nov. 11, 2014, Veteran’s Day. It is the very least we can do to show our honor and love for these American soldiers. The photographs needed from our area include:
