Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Joel Michael Sabel, 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

Armed Forces Day 2010 - Memorial Mass at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception

The Bishop Amat Military Memorial Steering Committee arranged for the name of CPL Joel M. Sabel, Amat Lancer from the Class of 1961, to be on the altar at the National Shrine on Armed Forces Sunday, 16 May 2010 for the special Mass. His name joined the names of the 7 other Bishop Amat Fallen Military Heroes on the list. The Vicar General’s office of the Archdiocese of the Military Services provided this summary of the event:





Everything went quite beautifully. The Mass was held in the spacious

upper church of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and was filled (EWTN will air this Mass several times over the Memorial Day Weekend). Once again this year we were blessed to have the Knights of Columbus as our honor guard, as well as several members

of the Knights of St. Gregory, Malta, KHS, Constantinians and quite a

few Military Attaches: (France, Brittan, Bolivia, Argentina, Nicaragua

and Botswana). Mass opened with the presentation of the colors by a

multi-service color guard as those in the church looked on and the National

Anthem played. The first reader was Col. James Jolissaint followed by

RADM Patrick J. Lorge, petitions of the faithful were read by the

various military branches and of course the homily was done by Archbishop.

Broglio, Archbishop of the Military Services. This year different than in the past, the names submitted for prayer were carried to the altar in a Kevlar helmet (not a basket) by an

enlisted Army volunteer...quite moving I might add.



Thank you for your submission of names, know that we are grateful for

the sacrifice they made for all of us and this country.

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.
