MEMORIAL WALL CLOSEUP

Honoring Citizens of Irving Who Gave Their Lives in Service to our Country

The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it.
And one path we shall never choose...is the path of surrender, or submission.

William Marshall, who made a career in the U.S. Air Force, served as a transportation officer in 1968 in South Vietnam, where he was awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious service.  In the early 1980s, Marshall retired with the rank of major, moved his family to Irving, and went into social work for the state of Texas.


 
Charles Jordan came to Irving with his family in 1955 when he was twelve years old.  He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1962 and served as an aircraft mechanic in Vietnam in 1965.  Airman First Class Jordan left the service in 1966, and, upon his return home, made a career as an aircraft mechanic.


 
William Cain, an Irving native and MacArthur High School graduate, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1966.  Private First Class Cain was deployed to Vietnam and took part in several combat operations.  The 18-year old Marine was killed in action in a land mine explosion near DaNang in July 1967.


 
Leslie Wood, a native of Irving and a graduate of Irving High School, became a paratrooper in the U.S. Army in 1966.  Wood served in Vietnam in 1968 and was awarded the Bronze Star for heroism in ground combat.  After his military service, he returned to Irving to work in the family lumber business.


 
Larry Cox joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1968 and spent a year in Vietnam.  Lance Corporal Cox's unit provided armed escort for supply convoys as they made their way along the Demilitarized Zone.  After his discharge from the service, Cox moved to Irving to raise his family.  He also became involved in veterans' support groups.
