  ELMHURST, Ill. - Volunteers are coordinating a statewide effort to track down photos of Illinois natives killed during the Vietnam War as part of a national project by a veterans group.

 

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund started the "Wall of Faces" project about a decade ago to find photos for the more than 58,300 names listed on the monument in Washington, D.C. The group is working to create a digital database of the photos.
