WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A tribute has been prepared for members of Waterloo West High School's Class of 1965 who died in Vietnam.

Three of their classmates co-produced a video titled "Fallen Heroes." It recognizes the sacrifices of five classmates and the spouse of another who were killed during the war.

The video includes letters from fallen classmates, some read by surviving family members. It includes their West High senior pictures and is interspersed with footage that classmate Jim Hamlyn shot while he was in Vietnam.

Hamlyn, of Denver, Iowa, says he and classmates Linda Cook Cain and Barbara Ruisch Hessel wanted to do something a little different for the reunion next year.
