Six Russell County names appear on Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Comments re article 43888 Joe Hare offers to take photos to Somerset for The Wall Exhibit

The names of six Russell County men appear on the Vietnam Wall. To the best of my knowledge, this list is correct and complete. The third line of each entry is the date on which the soldier died; the 4th line is the location on the wall of the soldier's name.
