Although its home is in Washington, D.C., some of the 58,000 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial belong to Decatur residents. Every name, along with pictures of each individual, is being compiled into an online database called the Vietnam Wall of Faces.

According to the website, 34 men who served in the Vietnam War called Decatur their hometown. This includes men who served in the army, marine corps, air force and navy.

Currently, 30 of the 34 names have pictures associated with them, but the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund would like to fill in the remaining gaps.

The following names need photos to go up on the virtual wall. If you know any of these people and have an image, go here and click on their name to submit an image:

  • Richard F. Burnham, Jr. (born Oct. 7, 1946)
  • Perry C. Kitchens (born Aug. 31, 1949)
  • James H. Rodgers (born Jan. 19, 1948)
  • Virgil Stanley Jr. (born Sept. 8, 1943)
