Vietnam War virtual Wall of Faces seeking images for fallen Decatur soldiers
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.
