Faces from the Wall

CLICK & CONNECT: Faces from the Wall: Our searchable database includes information on Southern Illinoisans who died in Vietnam, www.thesouthern.com/vietnam.

SEND PHOTOS: Photos can be emailed to jeff.wilson@thesouthern.com, or mail or bring photos to 710 N. Illinois Ave. Carbondale, IL 62901, Attn: Jeff Wilson.

In September, Carbondale will be the temporary home of a traveling replica of Washington, D.C.'s Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

The wall includes the names of every service member who lost their life during the war in Vietnam. 

Between now and then, The Southern Illinoisan is working to put faces with the names of every local person on the wall. 

If you have a photo to share, email it to news@thesouthern.com, mail it to 710 N. Illinois Ave. Carbondale, IL 62901, or bring it by The Southern's office at the same address.

Photos sent by mail can be returned in a timely manner. Those brought to the office can be scanned and returned immediately. 

Submissions must include the person's name and hometown. If possible, age, rank and branch of service should be included, too.
