Pictures of Kansans Killed in Vietnam Sought

KSAL StaffSeptember 9, 2014

The Kansas Press Association is searching for pictures of Kansas residents who died in Vietnam.

The pictures will become part of a national project called “Faces Never Forgotten.” They will be added to the Wall of Faces in a new education center at the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the KPA began searching for the photos several months ago. KPA executive director Doug Anstaett said this week that of 265 photographs of Kansans sought in the project, 42 have been submitted to the KPA as of last Wednesday.

A total of 627 Kansas service members were killed in the Vietnam War. When the project began, photographs for 362 Kansas servicemen already were in hand.
