Never Forgotten
I am a Vietnam veteran and remember Juan high school days. His sister Elba wrote me letters while I was in Vietnam which gave me great support and comfort. The photo in the link I provided to the 35th Infantry Association upon their request. Juan's family sent me the photo. I scanned it and e-mailed to them. Juan will be always remember. Rest In Peace my friend.
