The VVMF’s website offers a glimpse of the photos collected so far. Users can go to the "Search the Wall" section of the website, and view any photos or remembrances of the fallen by typing in their names or hometowns.
Many friends and families of Utah’s fallen have already done so.
Find a photo?
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is seeking photos and memories of service members who died in Vietnam.
To submit online, follow the uploading directions at http://www.vvmf.org/submit_other.
To provide a photo by mail, print out the photo submission form from that website, and make an 8-by-10-inch copy of the photo at the highest quality possible with a glossy finish. Mail the envelope, noting that a photo is enclosed, to: Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Attn: Call for Photos, 2600 Virginia Avenue, NW, Suite 104, Washington, D.C. 20037.
More information about how to add a photograph to the collection is available at 202- 393-0090 or via email at email@example.com.
The Salt Lake Tribune also welcomes copies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A former classmate of Boyd K. Newbold at Ben Lomond High School in Ogden posted a remembrance, as did a fellow Special Forces soldier who trained with Newbold. "I will never forget him, his wit, determination, skill and desire. Truly a Special Forces Soldier," wrote Jim Blanchard.
Newbold was just 21 when he died in Hua Nghia province of Vietnam in 1969.
Terry Schow, executive director of Utah’s Department of Veterans Affairs, said that as photos are donated to the VVMF, the state can get copies for its own Vietnam War monument on the west side of the Capitol.
"Maybe we could build a kiosk with those," he said.
