The database page for Ignacio Montero
The last time I saw him, he was like me, young and alive, and we talked of our future, what we would do when we got home, but he gave it all and I have missed him over the years, the smile, the sincere friendship and a true Marine Buddy. Peace, my friend.
From a Marine buddy,
Ignacio Montero was my oldest brother. Ignacio volunteered for the Marine Corps after high school. I was only 8 years old when he was killed in Vietnam. After his death my dad avoided talking of him and evaded answering questions about him.
For years I've been trying to find somebody who served with him - but until now without success.
From his younger brother,
A Note from The Virtual WallPfc Ignacio Montero was a mortarman with H&S Company, 1/1 Marines, but by report was serving in the field with Alpha 1/1 at the time of his death. Two 1/1 Marines died on 29 Sep 1970: LCpl Bryce L. Kindrick of Torrance, CA (C Company), and Pfc Ignacio Montero.
