. Raymond F. Eade was a young local man who lived with his sister and father in the small house directly north across the river from the monument. As a young man he often worked summer jobs for local ranchers and hunted in the surrounding hills. He was well respected by all of his neighbors. When duty called, he proudly went to serve his country. Sergeant Eade served in the U.S. Army 8th Inf. 4th Div. and was killed in combat, at the age of 22, while serving in Viet Nam. On March 24, 1969, he was driving an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) and was killed by a large land mine. (Submitted on November 28, 2013, by James King of San Miguel, California.)
