The Vietnam Veterans Memorial best known as “The Wall”

Bringing closure and healing since 1982

There are 1,306 Virginian Vietnam veterans listed on The Wall. In the fall of 2015, WHRO Public Media launched the Wall of Faces project as over 500 Virginian veterans still needed a photo.

Today, we are honored to share with you all Virginian Vietnam Veterans whose names are on The Wall now have a photo.

Since its dedication on November 13, 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) has "pursued a mission of preserving the legacy of The Wall, promoting healing and educating about the impact of the Vietnam War." To further this mission and to help memorialize each individual, the VVMF is building The Education Center to tell the stories of our fallen heroes to provide an educational experience about the Vietnam War. Photos for all Virginians will help the VVMF achieve this vision and honor their service, honor their memory.

Today, nationwide, there are less than 230 names still in need of a photo. If you would like to help find photos missing in other states, go to
