My name is Betty Henry and I'm a volunteer at The Wall. Last Sunday, as I was sitting in the kiosk I came across the labor of love Summary of Marine casualties in Vietnam compiled by your organization and kept on file there. I began reading the horrendous accounts of your losses, and felt it was my duty to notify you of a program that we at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund are planning for our new Visitor Center.
The program is called "A Face to a Name". It is an attempt to collect a photo of each person who is listed on The Wall for display in the yet-to-be-built Visitor Center.
President Bush signed the legislation a week after Veteran's Day which will permit the construction of an underground Historical and Educational Center in the near vicinity of The Wall. I know you will want to honor your fallen brothers with a remembrance photo and you can get further details from our web site, www/VVMF.org.
We also have a ceremony the third Monday of April called "In Memory Of" which honors our fallen brothers and sisters who have died from the effects of Agent Orange and PTSD. Please consult the web site for information on that subject.
If you have any questions, please e-mail me.
