The Department of Defense is seeking help in tracking down photos of five Vietnam Veterans. They are trying to create an online database for Vietnam veterans killed in action. There were 26 Vietnam veterans from Martinsville and Henry County killed during the war.
The Bassett Historical Center is currently working with the capital to find the remaining photos of Charles Edward Manns, Lewis Dean Lamkin, Jerry Allen Dillard, Samuel Harrison Easley, and David Wayne Wilson. If you have photos of any of these men, the Bassett Historical Center would love to have one.
