The Fenton History Center’s Vets Finding Vets Program is searching for pictures of three Vietnam War soldiers from Chautauqua County that were killed in action. The Center’s Research Center is working with a Buffalo based researcher who is looking to match photos to every name on the Vietnam Memorial Wall. They will join the over 58,000 other photos when the project is finished. The missing three from Chautauqua Co are: Dahl J. LaPorte from Dunkirk, Nicholas P. Ligammari from Lakewood and Charles T. Thielges from Jamestown. If you recognize any of these names, please call or email the Research Department @664-6256 or researcher@fentonhistorycenter.org.
