Ram Chavez, who is heading the project to bring the wall to Corpus Christi is asking families who lost their sons in the Vietnam War for pictures of their love ones.
The pictures will be displayed on a Wall of Heroes during the same days that the Wall will be in Corpus Christi.
Also, Ram Chavez will be sending out invitations to those same families, known as the “Gold Star Families,” for a Gala that will honor those killed in Vietnam, most likely to take place on April 14.
Pictures and addresses of the Gold Star Families are needed as soon as possible.
