The Vietnam Veterans Memorial

(AP) - The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is the scene of
a solemn ceremony today where the names of six American servicemen
were recently added to The Wall.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, will
remember the men and women who have fallen in service to their
country during the annual observance.

The Memorial Fund website says the Memorial Day ceremony is
hosted yearly by the Fund and the National Park Service to pay
tribute to members of America's armed forces who have made the
ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam and in all conflicts.

The six servicemen are: Lance Cpl. John E. Granville, USMC, Los
Angeles; Lance Cpl. Clayton K. Hough Jr., USMC, Holyoke, Mass.;
Capt. Edward F. Miles, USA, Manhasset, N.Y.; Sgt. Michael J.
Morehouse, USA, Covington, Ky.; Lt. Col. William L. Taylor, USA,
Tampa, Fla. and Cpl. Ronald M. Vivona, USMC, Suffolk, N.Y.
