Wisconsin Remembers Exhibit Puts a Face to Every Wisconsin Name Listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
Wisconsin Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Television and the Wisconsin Veterans Museum are pleased to share Wisconsin Remembers: A Face for Every Name - a traveling exhibit that features a photo for each of the 1,161 Wisconsinites officially listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The exhibit also includes additional photos for names that are listed on The Highground Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Neillsville, WI. Wisconsin Remembers is a tribute to lost life and lost potential.
The photos were collected by volunteers from throughout Wisconsin over the past eight years. Friends and family of those who were killed in Vietnam submitted photos, but so did students, teachers and others who simply wanted to put a face to the names listed on the Wall in Washington, D.C. The images they found will help tell the story of the men and women who are listed on the Wall as part of a new Education Center the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is building on the National Mall. Wisconsin was just the fifth state in the nation to find a photo for every resident listed on the Wall.
For further information on the Wisconsin Remembers Exhibit please contact Neil Lillie at 715-263-3020.
This space is located in adjoining rooms 101 and 103 at the North end of the building accessible through exterior door number 6 from the Northeast parking lot.
It is available to anyone looking for a venue for a party, a banquet, a wedding reception or dance.
