Freedom Fighters: Noel and Loel Largent

Twin brothers, Noel and Loel Largent both went to Vietnam to fight for their country, but only one returned.

Noel Largent joined the Navy Reserves in high school and soon after graduation went on active duty. His brother Loel joined the Army and became an Airborne Long- range Reconaisance Ranger. Both were in Vietnam at the same time. A day after Noel returned home from Vietnam, Loel was killed on a special mission.

Although Noel Largent an his family mourned the death of Loel, they are proud that Noel's son Joshua is serving his country in the Army. Joshua was stationed in Iraq for a year and will soon be returning there.
