The Washington Times has partnered with the Internet company Footnote.com on a new project that transforms Washington's Vietnam war memorial wall into an interactive, personal journey on the Web. The Interactive Vietnam Veterans Memorial allows you to search the names on the wall and to drill down into the government's official war records to learn details about each of the 58,000-plus heroes enshrined on the wall.
You can also add your own personal stories, remembrances and photographs.
The digital image of the Wall — actually thousands of photos fused together — locates each veteran's name where it appears on the Memorial. From there, any visitor from The Times site can leave their stories and remembrances or upload photos of veterans.
Start by clicking on the "Search the Wall" box, where you can select "Search" or "View." Once you find the name of a soldier, you can add your stories or photos.
