    Hello…ran across your blog while researching Victor Gross. I am with the American Legion Post 372 in Cherry Hill, NJ. We will be bringing the Vietnam Traveling Wall to our community this spring and are trying to track down family members of KIA that were from Cherry Hill….
    Can you please contact me at and I can discuss further…
