NAMES on THE WALL
A PROGRAM FOR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND VETERANS
This program was designed by Chuck Mangi (US Army) at the request of
Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 49, Westchester Co., NY
Thanks to Fred Hillmann (USMC), Chapter 49 who wanted "something better".
Fred and Chuck Mangi are pictured together at the
in Carmel, New York, October 7, 1995.
Thanks to John DeVitt (US ARMY) who supplied the initial list of the names
and who subsequently updated that list and passed it along. And also to
John for providing those in the US who cannot travel to Washington the
opportunity to share through his "Moving Wall" the emotion and memories
that the Vietnam Veterans Memorial evokes.
Thanks to Jim Mangi (Chuck's brother, US Army) as a representitive of that special breed
who volunteered to go to Vietnam at the worst of times.
Thanks to Jim Mangi (Chuck's son) who felt NAMES on THE WALL deserved
recognition on the Internet.
Thanks to Bill McBride, who agreed with Jim, and
put it there.
