We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Luis graduated from St Thomas Aquinas High School. He was living in Puerto Rico when he enlisted in the US Navy on 25 July 1966, at a recruiting office in San Juan. Before going to Vietnam Luis was stationed at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia. When Luis arrived in Vietnam 8 December 1967 he was assigned to H & S Company, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division and attached to Charlie Company, as a Corpsman. The battalion was participating in Operation Napoleon/Saline when Charlie Company was using Otters to cross the Cau Viet River about 4 kilometers northeast of the Dong Ha Airfield. An Otter was sinking for some unknown reason when Luis jumped off in the river and drowned. His body was recovered.

Survived by his wife, Sandra Marie Delgado-Class of 3111South Armour Street, St Francis, Wisconsin, and his parents; Estanislao and Carman Class-Delgado and his sister; Becky Class-Delgado, all of Puerto, Rico.

Luis was buried 5 June 1968 with military honors.

Luis, you were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Luis.
