This is really sobering, but will have meaning to those who remember the Vietnam War. Click on the link, scroll down and find the city where you went to high school and look at the names.
Then, click on the name and it will give details of the death.



Vietnam 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.

Though this war was a bad endeavor by this country,and very poorly run,these soldiers,living and dead,sould be honored for their service to our country.

It's not their fault they were left out to dry.They were doing what they were brought in to do.

This episode of our history sickens me.

This was a volatile part of our history.Protests,riots,the evening news would start out with death tolls.

We went from the age of innocence to hell on wheels in a short period.

These soldiers didn't deserve the treatment they got,and now we are going overboard to see that that our current soldiers aren't treated the same no matter the crap our leaders got us into.

We learned a lesson,but if the draft is ever placed in effect again for a useless cause,then history will repeat itself.This is why Bush USED the National Guard.

He hid behind it to keep out of battle,but used it to meet his means.Hypocrite.

We're in another Nam right now and most of the people living in this country are totally blind to it.

just looking at some of those, its crazy how many casualties there were classified as non-hostile.  many killed in crashes, a few drownings/suffocations, and some were simply not disclosed but listed as non-combative.  crazy
