Trying to Honor a man properly

I found a strange anomaly of this fallen Sailor. He is listed at Arlington Section 55 Site 3421 and Pacific Crest Cemetery Redondo Beach, CA
Neither is a Memorial Headstone (Cenotaph)
Both headstones Have :
Same Exact Name
Same Birthday
Same Death Date
One in Arlington is that he was BM2 on this headstone.
The one in Redo Beach is the was HM2.
Official Records list him as HM2
I have photos of both headstones
Could this be 48 year old mistake?
Can you shed some light on this subject.?
You can contact me directly at [email protected]
Best Regards
Tom Burgdorf

My love

I miss you everyday my sweet love. You were the greatest blessing of my life. You filled it with joy and fun. It is 47 years since that light went out and the loneliness is the same. Someday I will see you again my love.

Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

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.
