A Name to Remember All

A likeable young man from Norfolk enlisted in the Army when he was 19. He never saw 20. Through an interview with his childhood friend, Jan Einspahr, we explore Claude Van Andel’s life and how the Norfolk native's combat death during the Vietnam War served as inspiration to build a national memorial.
