National effort seeks to find photographs of all 58,267 lost in Vietnam
Of the 198 North Dakotans who were killed or declared missing in the Vietnam War, David James Corcoran of Grand Forks was the youngest, just 50 days past his 18th birthday when he died in 1969. Sgt. Ward G. Walter, 50, of Minot, killed in 1967, was the oldest. Their names are on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., among the 58,267 soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen listed as lost in Southeast Asia more than 40 years ago.
