WALL OF FACES Concluded from p. 1 The missing photo was brought to the governor's and lieutenant governor's attention by Iowa Newspaper Association Executive Director Chris Mudge at a March meeting. Mudge informed the Governor's Office that her organization had been working with local newspa- pers to locate photos of fallen soldiers from the Viet- nam War. "Through our members across Iowa, we've been suc- cessful in finding many photos for the 'Wall of Faces' memorial," said Mudge. "Unfortunately, we're still missing a photo of David L. McCombs, but we're opti- mistic that Iowans will take this call to action to heart and help find the remaining photos before Memorial Day." The Iowa Department of Veterans Affairs has been working diligently to locate the photo by tracking down potential leads and resources. Unfortunately, the depart- ment has been unable to locate a photo through gov- ernment, school and other community records. The department is hopeful that someone will come forward with more information about McCombs. Individuals who believe they may h-ave a photo of McCombs or may know someone who would have a photo may contact Missy Miller with the Iowa Depart- ment of Veterans Affairs at Melissa.Miller2@iowa.gov or by phone at 515-727-3443.
