Long Beach Veterans  
  The image on the left is of Cliff Chaffee, a career Navy man, posing with his biplane in 1937. In 2006 Cliff was 91 years old and was Honorary Grand Marshall of that year's Veterans Day Parade. The center image is from a snapshot of a group of Veterans taken at the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial directly across the street from the mural site. The wall behind the flags in the painting is the wall the mural is now painted on. On the right is an image of Jerry Shultz painted from the last photo taken of him in uniform. Mr Shultz is a highly decorated Vietnam Veteran who later became a Long Beach Councilman for the district the mural is in. He was one of the first organizers of the Veterans Day Parade and a major force in the creation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
