Wall of Faces Photo Project Update...
Links below show California's updated list for Monday, 02/18/19. There were 2 names removed from the California list of missing photos provided on 02/11/19. Today the nationwide total number of missing photos stands at 1441, a decrease of 53 names from last week. Texas cleared its last remaining missing photo this past week.
There are now 202 California names without photos according to the VVMF Wall of Faces website. There were 430 California names without photos when CSC started this project. Today’s number is a 53.0 percent decrease from our October 2017 start.
Please let me know if you locate photos for any of the names on the list. This is the only way that we can document the value of this project and CSC’s success.
REMINDER: We are ONLY looking for photos of those listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Please do NOT submit photos of living veterans.
