In the front row sat a young man whose picture I had been seeking for weeks by the name of Phillip Eberhardt. Almost four years after that picture was taken, he died in Vietnam. In this photo, he looks so young. For the past few weeks, I've been trying to find the photos of Wisconsin service members who died in Vietnam. I've been doing this, in part, to help Andrew Johnson, the man who has made finding these photos his personal mission. He's a newspaper publisher from Dodge County who wants to make sure our Vietnam veterans are remembered because they were there for his family when his son David died in Afghanistan. Most recently, he was in Milwaukee at a dinner honoring our local hero, Congressional Medal of Honor winner Gary Wetzel. Johnson stood at a booth at the War Memorial with a sign and a list. Names that are missing photos. Names of young men who left Wisconsin 45 years or so ago and never returned. There are currently 46 Wisconsin service members who died in Vietnam whose photos are still missing. The people who built the Vietnam Memorial wall in Washington D. C. – the Vietnam Memorial Fund – are trying to find a photo to match each name. They reached out to media in all states some time ago, and that's how Johnson found out about their effort.

Amazing!!!! Was shocked that the product surpassed the price of the clock. Once on our kitchen wall it looks like it costs a couple hundred dollars. Love the retro look and the fact I can read the time. It replaced a clock that was difficult to read.
