Pvt. Willie Bedford Found: Journalism Student Finds Last Wisconsin Vietnam Photo

The “Faces Never Forgotten” project was nearly complete in Wisconsin. Out of 1,161 missing photos of Wisconsin’s Vietnam dead, just one fallen soldier remained faceless: Willie Bedford. His five surviving siblings had no photo. His only child had been just three months old when her father, a 19-year-old Marine, drowned in Vietnam. Now, through careful reporting, community connections and a reach-back into the Bedford family’s memory, UWM student journalist Rachel Maidl shares a lost photo of this young hero with his grateful family.
