A PROGRAM FOR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND VETERANS
Features of "NAMES on THE WALL"
Look up any name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial or the Moving
Look up can be by last name only, last name generic (as Man*
which will find Mangi, Mankin etc), last name and city, and
state, and branch. Look up can also be by KIA date or within a
range of dates.
Duplicate names are all displayed with branch, city and KIA/MIA
date so that you may select your choice.
Once the name is found (and selected if a duplicate name) it is
displayed on the screen with name and rank, city and state of
record, KIA or MIA date and location on THE WALL.
If desired that information can be printed. The print will show
the same data at the top of the page with a section at the bottom
for a tracing. Surrounding the tracing are the words that appear
on THE WALL itself at the top of panel 1 east and the bottom of
panel 1 west.

The author runs it under both DOS
and Windows 3.1. There is no need for a mouse but a hard disk is
required. You should plan on about 10 meg(it may need up to 15
meg during the installation procedure). The file itself is

program was written in MS Professional Basic with the screens
written in Crescent Software's "Quick Screen". Distribution
