November 11, 2017, will mark the 35th anniversary of the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC.

As part of the commemoration of The Wall’s 35th anniversary, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) will be hosting the 2017 Reading of the Names inscribed on the wall. Volunteers are needed for this monumental event, as a reader or as a spectator, in honor of their sacrifice.

The Reading of the Names will take place at The Wall over a four-day period beginning with an opening ceremony on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 3:00 pm and ending at 12 am on November 10. Each volunteer will read 30 names in approximately two minute intervals.

The wall originally listed 58,191 names when it was dedicated on November 11, 1983. As of May 2017, there are now 58,318 names, including 730 Blackhorse troopers.

If you live in the Washington, DC, area or will be visiting during this time, please consider volunteering to read names. It is an honor to read names. You must register as a volunteer by August 11, 2017. For more information and to register as a volunteer, please visit www.vvmf.org/rotn

I served with Wayne in Nam. I was the Lead Scout. My wife and I saw him at many reunions and was there when your father received his award. E-mail me at JE@GEHRING.com He might be in some of the slides I have on a disk. I can send you a copy.

Hello...My brother, Billy Wayne Goad, departed this world on 1/24/20014. He was in 1Trp 3/4 1967-68. My father, M/Sgt. (Ret.) Verlon Goad accompanied him to the 2006 Reunion. Chuck * * * presented Dad with his WWII Bronze Star, which he had never received, at that reunion. In the 4th Qtr, 2006 "Thunder Run", there is a picture of that presentation. Wayne had the picture, but before he passed away, his house burned and he lost all his pictures. I would like to have a copy of that picture if possible. If there is anyone out there who has pictures that show Wayne, it would be nice if you could email a copy to me. He lost all his VN, Korea, Germany pictures. Thank you very much, and God Bless You All!

Fellow troopers - I am looking for assistence. I was temporally blinded aboard the USS Upshur in August-Sepember 1966. I was assised by a few guys down the stairs and into the infirmery. The ship's crew bandaged and assisted with my eyes. I was blinded for nearly 24 hours. I attemped to get ship's medical records without success for my VA claim. I was told that if someone helped me or knew of my situation I could get a buddy statement basically saying they either assisted me or knew of me being blinded. I was diagioused with macular dengeration at 32 yrs of age. Can anyone help me???
