Uncle Sam’s Memorial Tribute was on display during Memorial Day weekend in the Bolton Home and Garden Building at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds.

The tribute is comprised of a memorial wall and two photos displays. The N.C. Moving Wall, which contains the names of over 1,600 North Carolinians lost in the Vietnam War, was created in 1990 by Phyllis Dorothy Zawislak. There were photos of war memorial monuments that were compiled by John Winecoff and Ed Gibson over three and a half years. There were more than 2,000 photos of Vietnam casualties who are associated with North Carolina, which were compiled over 10 years by brothers Jim and Tom Reese with assistance from Rosa King and Janna Hoehn.

Tribute organizer Burgess Bailey points out one of the war memorial photos to Veteran Donald Eldridge.
