    Dear PFC Kenneth Robert Escott, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

    Curt Carter

    The La Sierra High School Vietnam Veterans Memorial is located on the grounds of the Earl J. Koobs Nature Study Area, adjacent to Garfield Elementary School in Carmichael, CA. The memorial is dedicated to 14 former students of La Sierra High School who lost their lives in Vietnam. The land for the nature area was purchased by students from La Sierra High School and Garfield Elementary in 1971. It was dedicated to Earl J. Koobs in 1973, to honor his inspiration for and dedication to the area. The La Sierra High School Vietnam Veterans Memorial was created the same year and is one of the first known Vietnam memorials in California. It was crafted in the high school metal shop by students wanting to remember their classmates lost during the war. While access to site is limited, each Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day a ceremony takes place honoring those who sacrificed their lives for their country. The above picture demonstrates the amphitheater-style setting of the memorial. In the bottom image, the names of the 14 soldiers who lost their lives in Vietnam include the name of Jerry Cowsert, a former La Sierra student who was killed in a basic training accident.
