National Call for Photos Contributor Janna Hoehn Named One of Maui’s “People Who Made A Difference” in 2011
Maui, HI– Longtime Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund contributor Janna Hoehn, of Maui, Hawaii was named one of the island’s most influential people in a recent article in The Maui News.
Ms. Hoehn located and submitted photographs of all 42 service-members who perished in Vietnam from her home island, working diligently throughout the process. “I’ve met some lovely, lovely people,” said Hoehn, “this has been a true honor for me.”
Her efforts to collect these photographs allows the service-members from Maui to be immortalized in the Education Center at The Wall, a place on the National Mall that will show the faces of our military heroes and honor their service and sacrifice.
As Ms. Hoehn looks toward the future, she hopes to display the photographs she has collected on her own memorial wall. In conjunction, she has expanded her photo search to include service-members from her hometown of Hemet, California.
VVMF is proud to collaborate with Ms. Hoehn as we look forward to the construction of the Education Center at The Wall and the completion of the National Call for Photos. “Janna’s help ensures that the sacrifices made by our greatest heroes never go unnoticed and unappreciated,” said Jan C. Scruggs, Founder and President of VVMF.
