There are 1,306 Virginian Vietnam veterans listed on The Vietnam Veterans Memorial best known as “The Wall”. In the fall of 2015, WHRO Public Media launched the ‘Wall of Faces’ project with 500 veterans still needing a photo. On May 22, WHRO asked the public to help in finding the last remaining Virginia veteran missing a photo - Sergeant Walter Williams, Jr. of Portsmouth.

“We are thrilled to announce Sergeant Williams has been found, “said Bert Schmidt, President and CEO of WHRO Public Media. “Now, every Virginian has a photo to honor their service and memory.  I want to thank everyone who helped us with this amazing project.”

WHRO Public Media has honored veterans through several initiatives, with the longest-running project being the Wall of Faces.
