Sgt Jesus Roberto
Hello, my name is Dolores Ituarte-Valenzuela. I am currently looking for any information regarding family members/fellow Marines of Sgt Jesus Roberto Vasquez who was a resident of El Paso, Texas. We are trying to obtain information in order to be able to get permission from and/or support from family/friends/fellow Marines of Sgt Vasquez in order to honor him in El Paso with a park/city street named after him.

I would appreciate anyone’s help with this.
I thank you in advance for all your help and support.
