Something for our Vietnam Veterans from Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477

This is really sobering. Click on the link at the bottom and find the city where you went to high school.   Then look at the names.  Click on the name and it will give you further details.

 

Vietnam Wall

Viet Nam Wall

First click on a state.  When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.  Then click on their names.  It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.

 

This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.

 

I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio’s and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.

 

Pass the link on to others, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.
