Very cool guy

I had the privilege of knowing Roger in high school in Costa Mesa California. I titled this "cool guy" because he was the guy that his parents let him have Playboy magazines in his room. Over the years I have often thought of him and during my times as a politician on my visits to DC I would always go by the wall and visit. Still brings tears to my eyes thinking of him.

Fellow Marine unit Veteran John A. Ortiz

I had the honor of serving with Roger Yamanaka with H&S Co, 3/26 Marines. Met him while at Camp Evans when I joined the 81 mortar platoon. We shared the same sleeping quarters and worked together on occasion. I remember Roger mostly at Evans but we were in the same unit until December 67 when I was assigned to India Co and was sent to Hill 881 South while he and another 81's section remained at Khe Sanh Combat base throughout that period. I remember him as a proud and yet humble human being. I think of him often. Semper Fi Marine
