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.

For Freepers that served in Vietnam -
I thought you would appreciate this incredible story sent to me by my cousin. This is about an American hero from Texas who is buried in Arlington. He received the Medal of Honor for his heroism in Nam.
....turn up the volume.
To all our Freeper veterans, thank you for your service and your sacrifice.
Amazing. Thank you.
Thanks FRiend for posting this.
PING for tears.
I lost a friend in Nam - and just found his name,.
Thank you for posting this. I found my cousin by marriage that I knew had been killed. I also knew it was in the first 6 months, but found it was less than 3 months. He was so handsome, so much fun, and engaged before going over. Chopper pilots didn’t have long lives there.
Is this going to make me cry ...like the real wall does?
Thanks for posting....two of my closest friends in HS are on the Wall....I just went to the Atwater, CA, site to see their names and it brings back all the pain yet again when they were lost. I’m just so thankful that todays vets are treated so much better then those guys coming back from Nam were. I have a monthly allotment going to the Wounded Warrior Project - there’s nothing too good for those men and women keeping us safe from the Muzzies and that’s my little way of saying thank you.....
I just found my 2nd cousin’s name - he was killed in the first three months also.....of course, I never knew him as my father is retired military and I was never back in Jackson AL very many times....but I did shed some tears when I saw his name as he was family and he was lost over there.....
Very interesting. I wasn’t even born when most of these men died, but out of the 12 men from my town, I still know the families of a few of them.
God Bless every one of them.
I once walked with heroes ~ and that was long before any of us became soldiers. Probably why he's there and I'm here telling you about him.
Thanks stockpirate. I’ve got some searches to do.
I felt a twinge for a guy I didn't know, and he wasn't as closely related as your cousin, but he served with guys who knew guys I knew, from the same general area, and all were blood.
Wow, that is quite a story. Thanks.
Oh, my. Thank you for this.
