Local woman seeks Vietnam veteran pictures

Military

One local woman and a group of her friends are working to put faces to the names of Vietnam War veterans. 

The Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. lists those veterans who served during the war. 

But the digital version also includes pictures, but not for all the listings. 

“So people really want to help and they’re excited and they’re on board and I think that’s because in West Virginia we tend to be pretty patriotic and we serve our country. I think that personal photo is really going to make a difference,” said Patricia Haught, Fairview resident. 

Haught said if you’d like to help, pick a name on the wall and use Facebook, old yearbooks and or obituaries to find the corresponding picture.
