All They Left Behind began with a question from a student to a teacher, and soon grew into a project to identify all of the Vietnam War dead from Dearborn, Michigan. After partnering with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and their Call for Photos project, Dearborn teacher Lisa Lark was soon gathering photos and stories from all over the United States. All They Left Behind is the result of more than two years of research and more than 500 interviews with Vietnam veterans and the friends and families of the men and women on The Wall. Published in commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of The Wall, All They Left Behind reveals some of the amazing lives and stories of the more than 58,000 men and women whose names are on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The profiles featured in All They Left Behind reveal the personalities, histories, and courage of more than 50 of those who gave their lives in service to their country during Vietnam. These stories, along with thousands of others, will be featured at the forthcoming Educational Center at The Wall.
