Richard “Dick” Schwartz will celebrate his 80th birthday Oct. 1. Schwartz’s family is requesting cards to help celebrate.
Schwartz was born in Leavenworth in 1935. He retired as a colonel in the Marine Corps after 30 years of active service. His Marine life took him all over the world, including service as an infantry company commander in Vietnam, where his company made the first amphibious landing of the war.
Schwartz and his wife, Margie, moved to the Marion County Lake in 1998.
Cards may be sent to 4 Hill Rd., Marion County Lake, Marion KS 66861.
