Being part of the Logan County Honor Group, we wanted to do something super special while The Wall That Heals is in town. We have decided to create a COMMEMORATIVE BOOK. But what does that mean?
Our plan is to include information about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., and The Wall That Heals. We also want to include information about the ceremonies and events that will take place while The Wall That Heals is in Logan County. (Trust us when we say plenty will happen that week!)
Finally, - and here's where we need your help - we want to include information about the veterans of the Vietnam War era. This includes those whose names are on The Wall, those who made it home and later died, AND those who made it home and are still with us. To be "eligible" for the Commemorative Book, we do not care where they were born, where they lived, where they called or currently call home, or where they died. We don't care if they were only state-side or if they were deployed. If you want to include them, we want to know about them! Remember, the ONLY condition is that they SERVED DURING THE VIETNAM ERA.
Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to research this era for veterans to include. You must submit the veteran's information for it to be included.
So, what can you do to help? Complete and/or share our Logan County Commemorative Book Application:
Open the PDF application below. Complete the form and email to or drop it off at the Archives with the veteran's photo.
Click the Commemorative Book Application link below. There are 3 options for submitting the veteran's photo.
Email us a request. Please put VIETNAM VETERAN FORM in the subject line. We will email the application to you. Complete the form and email to or drop it off at the Archives with the veteran's photo.
If you prefer a paper copy, please stop by Logan County Archives, Logan County Public Library, Logan County-Tourism, Pennyrile Rural Electric, Electric Plant Board, Yates Pharmacy, Riley-White Pharmacy, Auburn Banking Company, or Lewisburg Banking Company. (Please be patient as we work our way around the county to other businesses.)
Another way you can help is to share! Share that The Wall That Heals is coming to Logan County, KY June 4-9. Share with others about the Logan County Honor Group Facebook page because that is where ALL the information can be found.
Since we will be taking forms until Sunday, June 9th, the book will be available for purchase later this summer. Information about purchasing the book will be released later.
