During the World War II our young boys and men from Boyle Heights, Belvedere Gardens, East L.A., City Terrace and other surrounding neighborhoods east of the Los Angeles River were drafted or enlisted into the military service.

Our fathers, uncles, friends and neighbors served in this war. Many never returned home. WWII ended in 1945 and we continue to share the Spirit of ’45 and remember them.
