Hicksville Vietnam War Era Memorial - PROJECT UPDATE

As of the end of March our list stands at 1,774 names of Vietnam War Era Veterans.  We believe we are close to completing our search for new names and our research emphasis is now turning to filling in missing data for the names we already have.  As a HixNews reader, you can be of significant help to this effort by clicking on the list of names near the bottom of this month's UPDATE that appears in the Honoring Our Veterans section of the newsletter.  Please look the list over to see if we are still missing any Veterans you know of and also let us know if you have some of the data we are still missing for names already on the list.

Our objective remains to not miss anyone who meets the qualifications and deserves to be included in the Memorial and you can still help make this happen. 

On behalf of The Project Team,

Joe Carfora, HHS '62
