Do you know of a Jackson Countian who was killed in Vietnam?
If so, do you have a picture of him that you will share?
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund in Washington, D. C. is trying to find photos of all American soldiers killed in Vietnam for a new exhibit at the Vietnam Wall. The VVMF has asked community newspapers to help in finding photos of those killed.
The VVMF lists five Jackson County men as having been killed in that conflict: Jack M. Carlan, John G. Davis, Mitchel A. Dowdy, James T. Hembree and Guy Stokes Jr.
The VVMF has pictures of all except Dowdy. Although they have pictures of the other men, they would like additional photos if possible.
If you have a picture of any of these men that you can share, please email a copy to Mainstreet Newspapers, Inc. co-publisher Mike Buffington email@example.com. Please include any information about the soldier that you may have in the email.
If all you have is a print, we will be happy to scan the photo at our corporate office at 33 Lee Street in Jefferson.
Plans call for use of the pictures in The Vietnam Veterans Education Center to be built on The National Mall near the famous Vietnam Wall.
The “Faces Never Forgotten” program is an effort to put a face and a story to each name on the Wall.
