MADISON (AP) -- More than 1,000 photos of Wisconsinites have been collected for a memorial in Washington D.C. showing the faces of those who died in the Vietnam War.
  
The Wisconsin State Journal reports the photos will be part of an education center built in 2016 near the Vietnam Wall.
 
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is collecting photos of the over 58,000 service members featured on the memorial, including more than 1,200 from Wisconsin.
  
Two statewide media organizations, the Wisconsin Newspaper Association and Wisconsin Public Broadcasting are managing separate efforts to track down the 230 photos still needed.
  
The WNA began participating in the project in April. Andrew Johnson, publisher of the Dodge County Pionier in Mayville, has managed to cover 75 names on the list.
