Dear Viewpoint:

I would like to thank Beth Coates for compiling a notebook with the pictures and military information on the twelve veterans from Halifax County whose names were on the Traveling Vietnam Wall that was in the county recently.

You may view this display at the South Boston-Halifax County Museum Wednesdays through Saturdays 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Fay Satterfield, Vice President, American Legion Auxiliary Unit 8
