  • Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

    Posted on 4/23/10 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    A portion of Sepulveda Boulevard/State Highway Route 1 in El Segundo near Los Angeles International Airport has been dedicated to the residents of Los Angeles County who served in Vietnam. This section of highway is now designated the Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway. Adopted by the California State Legislature in 2000, the highway honors the more than 350,000 California veterans who served in the Vietnam War, including the 5,822 killed or missing in action. Los Angeles County has the largest number of Vietnam veterans in California and 1,857 of its residents were killed or missing in action during that war. This memorial corridor provides a fitting and proper way for the residents of Los Angeles County to express their gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices these Vietnam veterans have made for their country.

    my Friend, the Brother I never had. You gave so much of yourself for so many others. They list your home as Arcadia, but you will always be Temple City's Own...the First of the "Temple City Four". My thoughts and prayers are always with you. Love from your "Sis" ~

    Craig and I were in a group called the "Spotlighters" in the early sixties. He was a gifted musician, and very witty. Most all of us went off to war. Most came back. Craig didn't. But he is remembered.

  • A different drummer

    Craig was a drummer - a winner of many competitions - a talent above the very best. (He played at the Cinnamon Cinder.)
    The world of entertainment lost a legend before he had enough time to shine.
    Craig was respectful. I will never forget the time that he stood up from his drum stool in the middle of an assembly performance to applaud a solo by another drummer - while most of us watching were dazzled by the superiority of Craig's ability over that of his fellow drummer.

    I knew Craig in High School. We both attended Temple City H.S. I always looked up to Craig - Craig was a year ahead of me - he was a really good guy.
