Verdugo Hills Hospital north parking lot
(1812 Verdugo Blvd., at the intersection of La Tour Way.)
The Historical Society will help to re-dedicate the recently rediscovered David Demmon memorial plaque at Verdugo Hills Hospital. Sgt. David Demmon had been shot down in Viet Nam in 1965. What happened to him after that is lost in the pages of history. Although he had been reported as being a POW, it was never verified, and he never returned home. The plaque had been dedicated originally in 1973 by Demmon's family who lived locally. Sadly, the plaque became overgrown and forgotten, until being rediscovered recently. It has been lovingly remounted by Boy Scout Adam Fletcher. A ceremony is planned with the help of local government officials, the CV High School ROTC, and David Demmon's family. This dedication ceremony promises to be a very moving event, as we respectfully remember one example of the highest costs of war.
