Some years back, Arturo Canales flew to Washington, D.C., to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. But before he could even approach the rolling black-granite structure or rub his fingers across the carved names of the more than 58,000 Americans who perished in the war, Canales, a veteran of the conflict himself, was overcome with emotion.

He hailed a cab to the airport and flew right back to Santa Fe.

    Does anyone know where we can see a list of the 398 NM Veterans? My uncle is a Vietnam Vet and he was from NM but he is listed as being from CA. I wanted to see if he is on our list from NM. His name is Pedro Miguel Maes he was a PFC and he was in the Americal Infantry Division, and he died on May 4, 1969. I would hate for our state to be missing one of our esteemed veterans in this wonderful memorial. Thank you!
