A small portion of the large crowd that gathered to honor and remember Vietnam veteran Roman Belasco.

The Fountain Valley's military and retired military community came together at the American Legion Post 38 in Fountain on Saturday, Sept. 30 for a Memorial service for Roman Belasco. He was born March 29, 1952 and passed on Sept. 2, 2017. The event was put together by representatives of VFW Post 6461 and American Legion Post 38 with support from others.

A large crowd of 400 to 500 people filled the Legion hall and actually overflowed into the parking lot, as members of the military, veterans and local community members gathered to say their last farewell and to show sympathy to his family and loved ones.
