A Hawaiian woman continues her search for one last photo of an Alice man who served in the Vietnam War; a search that began after she made a trip to Washington DC years ago.
Janna Hoehn, 25-year resident of Maui, Hawaii 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. The project took Hoehn to different states in the nation. Finding photos of the names etched on the wall.
Her search in South Texas has recovered all but one man, Antonio B. Jaime 1927-1968 of Alice.
Jaime was a World War II soldier who fought in the Korean and Vietnam War.
The photos Hoehn has collected have been 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. Putting a face with a name changes the whole dynamic of the Wall, it keeps our Fallen Heroes memories alive and will honor them, our heroes stories and sacrifice will never be forgotten, she wrote.
Hoehn asks anyone related, a friend or a classmate of Jaime to contact her. Any information would be helpful.
Please submit any photos or information to Janna Hoehn at firstname.lastname@example.org
