Hannah Ackerman has started a one-woman crusade to get 74 sailors of the USS Frank Evans killed in a ship-to-ship collision off Vietnam in 1969 added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington.
CEDAR FALLS | It has been 45 years since 74 American sailors died when their ship was cut in two by an Australian carrier off the coast of Vietnam.
Their names aren't on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. It's an oversight a young Cedar Falls woman has made it her mission to rectify.
Hannah Ackerman, a Cedar Falls High School graduate now attending Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, has won history awards for her presentations on two naval disasters. One is the loss of Waterloo's five Sullivan brothers during World War II. The other is the "missing 74" of the destroyer USS Frank E. Evans during the Vietnam War.
