    Katrina, I would like to honor USMC Sgt. Walter Morgan Bryant, a Vietnam vet, but try as I might, I can not locate any photos of him past or present. Any suggestions?

      We would love to honor him. If he’s already passed away then perhaps we can use a photo we find online that is respectful of that era. If he’s alive still we can use any picture, even if it’s with others.

        He is alive, but still I can not locate one.

          Perhaps you could ask him or one of his family/friends if they could get one to you. Otherwise, if you think he would be ok with it, we can use an era appropriate photo
