Steve Lee, 1946-1968
Steve D. Lee's father and mother, shown above, visited the LZ Peace Memorial on a beautiful Memorial Day in 2011. He and his wife are holding a banner and sign made by Rita Boothe.
 
Steve's parents live down south and traveled hundreds of miles to honor their son and other veterans who gave their lives for their country.
 
The writer of this site went to grade school and high school with Steve. We used to ride the school bus to Whig Hill and we did our share of goofing off.
