The goal is to locate photos of all 1,161 Wisconsin soldiers who died in the Vietnam War, by Memorial Day. One has remained particularly elusive, that of Willie Bedford, who attended high school in MPS.
Andrew Johnson, owner and publisher of the Dodge County Pioneer Newspaper started the search, after his son passed away fighting in Afghanistan in 2012. He was an Army captain.
"We need to recognize the great price that was paid; we can never waste that. My son would want me to live a full life. He'd want me to do something with my life," Johnson told students.
