The remains of a Marine from Los Angeles killed during the Vietnam War have been identified and returned to his family for burial, the Department of Defense announced. Lance Cpl. Luis F. Palacios will be buried Friday in Bellflower, the department said. Palacios was among 12 killed when their CH-46A Sea Knight helicopter was shot down on June 6, 1968, near Khe Sanh. Eight bodies were recovered. But Palacios and three other Marines remained unaccounted for. In 2007, military identification specialists, working with the government of Vietnam, excavated a spot where villagers said the crash had occurred.

NBC's presentation of "Peter the Great" was the equivalent of being invited to a superb gourmet dinner and being served tasteless hash. This was a major show hashed into small pieces and buried in commercials and fillers. Eleanor B. Samuels, La Puente

Even in reruns, Lifetime's "E.N.G." was eminently more watchable and intriguing at 7 p.m. weeknights than its replacements "E.R." and "Duet." Why the "big boys" buried such a good program at midnight, I'll never know! Roxann Lord, Palm Springs

The small patch of flowers serves as a reminder. It commemorates lives lost and souls remembered. The ashes of 50 or so are scattered or buried there. But the freshly turned topsoil and budding sweet alyssum in the modest garden on the Laguna Beach bluff are deceiving: The gardener is missing. Michel Martenay nurtured this little spot for more than 20 years, tugging weeds and planting perennials on his own time with his own money. He installed stone cherubs and lined the dirt with heart-shaped rocks gathered from the beach below.
