Newspaper publisher Andrew Johnson, UWM journalism lecturer Jessica McBride, and former UWM journalism student Dylan Deprey will talk about the challenges — and ultimate success — of researching and finding the final photos of all the Wisconsin soldiers killed in Vietnam for the Wisconsin Remembers: A Face for Every Name project.

Johnson and his wife Laura became involved in the project after their son David was killed in 2012 in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, while serving in the U.S. Army in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

This talk will take place in conjunction with the exhibit, which shows the photos of each of the 1,161 Wisconsin soldier who didn’t return home from the Vietnam War.

The event will take place at the War Memorial Center's Veterans Gallery on our 2nd floor. Parking and event are free.
