Effort under way to honor fallen soldiers

November 25, 2013

Maui resident Jenna Hoehn is asking for Inyo County residents’ help in obtaining photos of local men who died in the Vietnam war. Hoehn is working on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund to obtain a photo for each of the 58,286 names that appear on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. (above).

An ocean and 2,562 miles from Inyo County, Maui resident Janna Hoehn is working to help memorialize those who never returned home from the Vietnam war.
Hoehn, who has never visited Inyo County and knows nothing of its war dead other than that their names are etched on a wall alongside more than 58,000 others, is trying to honor the men and women of the armed services by locating photos of Vietnam veterans and ensuring that the U.S. government can provide a face for each name on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
