Do you know a person on the Vietnam Wall?

Ground has just been broken for a Vietnam Veterans Memorial at College of the Ozarks (near Branson) in MO.

Your help is NEEDED if YOU or a friend knows someone whose Name is on the Vietnam Wall? Needed is a contact person for each KIA, before the dedication each contact person whether it is a relative or friend will be notified prior to the Vietnam Memorial dedication with an invitation to attend the dedication ceremonies . If you know of someone that lost their life in Vietnam please send their contact information to Paul Frampton, VFW MO Dept Inspector so they may be notified. You can mail it to Paul Frampton at 105 Southview Dr.. Branson Mo. 65616 or send him an email at plframpton543@msn.com. Time is of the essence and the need is great.

Yes I know someone on the Wall, I know and served with his older brother. I'll phone him and let him know about your request and this thread. I would not presume to answer for him or send anyone his information without his permission.
This is a worthwhile endeavor, I hope your message gets a lot of attention.

Johnny Cash recorded the song "Roll Call" in 1967, that included names of those from Mo. This information can be found on the web site "SONG FACTS"

I served in Vietnam and know of some KIA's. I also live in Missouri. But after over 40 years I have no idea how to contact their relatives or anyone that can represent them.

I also am a survivor/Veteran of Vietnam. I have the same basic problem as MO FRED
In that family of those in the area who were KIA have moved away/died off. This is a great project to give more attention to those who have given the Supreme Sacrifice for our Nation.
Freedom is NOT FREE, it is paid for with the blood of our Veterans.
