Shocked

I was an OCS classmate of his, Fort Benning Infantry OCS, Class 6-70. Every now and then I search on the internet for people I knew, especially classmates and people I served with in Vietnam. About 6 months ago I found out that "Chaudoin" (we mostly knew each other by our last names) was KIA in Vietnam. I was shocked. I spent all of these years thinking of him as alive. He was already dead by the time I got to Vietnam.

It was not easy getting to know people during OCS. It was a struggle and you did your best to graduate. Chaudoin was one of the few men I got to know reasonably well. He was a great personality and I am sad knowing that he gave it all.

I find it interesting that Richard Romaniw also wrote a remembrance. He was in our OCS class, too. Richard passed away 2012. My guess is that he knew his time was coming and he was searching for lost comrades before his time was due. He lost his arm in Vietnam. They are the only two guys from our class that I know of who were wounded or KIA. I know others from our OCS class who served in Vietnam, but we all came back to live the lives that they sacrificed to give us.

Funny how things end up. Chaudoin was one of my best friends in OCS while Romaniw didn't like me and almost got me terminated from OCS.

God Bless Robert C. Chaudoin.

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.
