It was a long hunt!

It took many people 3 years to track down your photo. You are the last man from California to have his photo on the wall. RIP sailor.

Classmate!

Vernon was my high school classmate (1964 Manual Arts H.S. Los Angeles, Ca) and friend. This last week was the first I knew of his passing. To my knowledge, he is our only classmate to have died in Vietnam. I was an Army draftee in 1970 but did not serve in Vietnam.
