Looking for photos of fallen vets

There is a wonderful memorial near where I live to Rocky Versace, an Alexandria VA native, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroism while a POW in Vietnam. There are also inscribed the names of other Alexandria area vets who gave their lives while serving. The folks who run the memorial are asking for some help.

  As the "Friends of Rocky Versace" prepare for the Memorial Day Ceremony at Rocky's Plaza in Alexandria, wanted to ask you if you have any ideas about "spreading the word" concerning the fact that the FoRV still are without a photo for 30 of the 67 men whose names are chiseled intop stone below their Gold Star?
 
  One of those men, SFC David Warczak, was in B-50/5 SFGA when he died in 1969.  Earlier this year, a fellow SF medic provided the FoRV with a photo of SGT Ray B. Brown, A 416/D/5 SFGA (Jan '64), and we were grateful for that.
 
  Here is a link to a story about missing photos:

Thanks in advance for any thoughts/help on the matter.
