The Pike County Journal Reporter and its sister paper in Barnesville are joining a nationwide effort by community newspapers and others to find photos of all troops whose names are enshrined on the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C.
“The Faces Never Forgotten” project is sponsored by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation. The National Newspaper Association and Georgia Press Association have highlighted the project in communications to all member papers, citing the “deep community roots (and) unique position” of newspapers to help find and submit photos of each person killed in that war.
