On May 5,1993, a Memorial Service was
held for LTC Cozzalio
at the LMSG. After the service many dollars were given
in his memory. These donations enabled planning the
Hot LZ Wall.
The Wall was designed and constructed
by a team lead by Jim Leach, with the helicopters
created by Dennis
Smith. The Hot LZ Wall was dedicated on May 30,1994.
The LMSG Board at that time: Jim Leach, Roger Kosel,
