The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is looking for photos of more than a hundred Montana service members who died in Vietnam.
The VVMF wants to collect photos of the more than 58,000 service members inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. The photos will be displayed at the Education Center at the wall.
VVMF has collected more than 25,000 pictures so far -- 101 from Montana.
"I think putting those pictures up there is going to be a reminder to people that we did lose a lot of folks in Vietnam," Lolo veteran and American Legion member Elmer Palmer said. "They paid the supreme price. They did what their government asked them to do, and I think they should be honored."
VVMF is still missing 165 Montana photos. If you have a picture of a loved one or fellow veteran whose name is on the wall, you can submit it online by clicking here.
You can also email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Call for Photos." In the email, include the service member's name, your name, a password and any other information you would like included in the remembrance.
Or to mail a copy of your photo, send it to:
Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Attn: Call for Photos 2600 Virginia Avenue, NW, Suite 104 Washington, D.C. 20037
Do not send original photos; they will not be returned. VVMF prefers photos of the highest possible quality, with a glossy finish, at an 8 x 10 size.
If you mail your photo, be sure to include a photo submission form. You can find a copy of the form by clicking here.
