The IPA needs your help in promoting the Vietnam Veterans Wall of Faces to your communities. Just over 100 photos of servicemen and women killed in Vietnam are still missing from the Wall of Faces (http://www.vvmf.org/Wall-of-Faces/). Read more about newspapers' efforts to locate missing photos across the country here.
House ads are available to download and run with names of the missing servicemen and women from those counties. Please feel free to personalize these ads with your newspaper's logo or masthead. Ads will be updated periodically to reflect located photos. If your county's ad needs updated, please contact Kate Richardson at 217-241-1300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

This updated editorial is available to all Illinois newspapers for publication. Please customize the editorial with your newspaper's name and publication information.
