Someone I know is creating memorials for members of the Armed Forces that were killed in Vietnam. Actually, for the whole group, missing, kia, and survivors. His site is here: A Troop, 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry, 25th ID, Vietnam He is missing information, pictures, headstones of several members.

I am just trying to help my friend, who has put quite a bit of time and effort into adding the members of his troop to the online memorial. There are the remaining few he needs more information on to complete his memorial. He would like to be able to add personal pictures and pictures of the headstones, where they are buried, etc…to the memorial he has created. So, I am hoping that putting these names out here and the quest of my friend, that there might be some Veterans out there who might have some information and be able to help. If so, all they need to do is visit the page (link) at the very top of the page and contact the creator.
I am trying to find what I can on Ancestry.com, many however, were born after 1940 and without knowing the names of their parents or next of kin will be hard to locate. ANY help will be appreciated. I think having this completed by Memorial Day of 2012 would be a GREAT way to commemorate these fellow veterans. Thanks for any and all help in completing this quest.
