We know that not all men and women who entered the service had their "Home of Record" listed as the city where they lived.
We will work with the families to help add names to this memorial of men and women who were from Long Beach, CA. but had their home of record listed as another city, to do this we ask that you provide us with High School records that show that this person did go to school in Long Beach. Please contact us at our phone number with the information.

The mission of chapter 756 to provide a bonding unit for the Vietnam Veterans of Long Beach, CA. Primary goals include the interaction of membership with the inpatient veteran's at The Long Beach Veteran's Hospital. We have undertaken the mission of establishing a memorial to the 103 (+/-) veterans from the city of Long Beach that gave their lives in the war. This was accomplished by mounting an actual 'combat huey' in Houghton Park, Long Beach. This monument lists all 103 KIA's.
The pictures of the memorial are shown below. .
