Of course this is not limited to the Vietnam War, but in any service wartime or other. If you know an OC resident who died while serving the USA, post their name in a comment, and tell us their story.

  1. Hi Steve,

    I actually have a database of about 1,000 such individuals I identified, researched, and compiled over the last few years. Dating back to the Spanish-American War.

    I just haven't had the time to finish building it out yet (getting there), or to find the best permanent home for it. I've been learning towards offering it to the proposed OC military museum at the former USMCAS-El Toro, but who knows how long that will take.
