  • Richard James Stewart

    Posted on 8/19/18 - by Larry Lunzmann
    I went to Elementary School and High School with Richard and at 18 we joined the Marine Corps together along with another lifelong friend, Bob Garcia. In late March of 1967, 4 days before I was returning home Richard found me and we got together in the Con Tien area of VN, where I was preparing to go home. We did a little drinking, a lot of talking about home and what we wanted to do when we returned.
    Several days after I got home Richard’s Mom called me to inform me that a Marine Colonel had called to let them know that Richard had been killed. She wanted my opinion if that could be true, she could not believe it. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of Richard and our last get together. He was a great guy.
    RIP good friend.

    Dear CPL Richard James Stewart, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

    Posted on 5/4/10 - by
    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.
  • Thank you Corporal Stewart
