A Vietnam veteran from suburban Glenview was among those remembered Monday in Washington DC.

James Manwarren was a sergeant in the Air Force. In 1998 he died of cancer caused by Agent Orange.

Manwarren was one of 75 veterans added to what's known as the "in memory" honor roll in Monday's ceremony at the at Vietnam Memorial Wall. They are veterans who died as a result of the Vietnam war but did not meet the defense department's guidelines to be included in the official Vietnam Memorial in Washington.

More than 1,600 names are on the "in memory" honor roll.
