Michael Sears’ memories of Lionel Sanders:
“Lionel Vaugh Sanders was a good Marine. He left the Corps, and for the next few years, he returned home to Florida. He passed away in 2002.
He was a graduate of The United States Naval Academy, Class of 1978 and was commissioned as a 2ndLT where he served in numerous capacities as an Infantry Officer.
We saw him at the 20 year reunion where he was working in the cruise industry. He is remembered as one of the fastest guys in ’78 (Track) and a good and faithful friend.
“Bunky” Sanders left us too early.”
