HOLMDEL - Administrators have added the name of another Vietnam War veteran to the memorial wall in Holmdel.

Sgt. 1st Class Robert Wescott Jr., of Teaneck, served in Korea and did two tours in Vietnam.

Wescott died in 1969, but his name did not go up on the wall until today.

Authorities say that in many cases, families have to come forward to indicate the veteran's connection to New Jersey before the names can be added.

The memorial is located off exit 116 on the Garden State Parkway, on the grounds of the PNC Bank Arts Center.
