A Hawaiian woman's mission to honor soldiers who served in the Vietnam War is one step closer to completing her goal.
After two and a half years, Janna Hoehn, a resident of Maui, Hawaii, has found 3,420 photos of Texas solders who served in the War; closing the state in her ongoing quest in her "Faces Never Forgotten, Wall of Faces project."
When Hoehn began her journey she was missing 1,158 photos for Texas. On Tuesday, Jan. 23, Hoehn received the last photo.
“I am thrilled to finally call Texas complete,” she said. “Nationwide, we are only needing 3,697 photos out of 58,315."
Her search began after she made a trip to Washington DC years ago. She had always been interested in the Vietnam War. Hoehn's goal is to put a face to every name etched on the wall of “Faces Never Forgotten” for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
All of the photos is collects will be submitted to the “Wall of Faces” online memorial with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, as well as in the future Education Center that will be adjacent to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC.
