Virtual Wall adds Photos of Virgil Eugene "Bean" Childers Who Died in Vietnam


Bean Childers
Lacy Barnett who is a Dora Graduate (1944) and Veteran recently, with the help of Dora High School Librarian Sara York who is also a Dora High graduate, helped The Vietnam Veterans Association get a picture of Virgil Eugene "Bean" Childers, Class of 1965, who died on March 17, 1968, to post on The Virtual Wall. The medals shown on the Virtual Wall were recently donated to the Sumiton Area Veterans Monument by Childers' aunt who lives in Walker County.
The Virtual Wall has undertaken the ambitious project of locating photographs of all 58,000 soldiers killed in Vietnam to post on the Virtual Wall.
