Play associated audio

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is gathering photographs of the more than 58,000 men and women whose names are listed on the Vietnam memorial wall.

Organizers say the goal of the memorial is to ensure the sacrifice of those who died there will not be forgotten. Now they want to honor fallen veterans by displaying their photos at a planned underground education center near the memorial on the National Mall.

The estimated cost of the visitor's center is $85 million. More than $20 million has been raised so far. FedEx Office stores across the country are assisting with the effort to gather photos by providing free scanning services to help families submit their pictures of veterans.
