Fallen Marine's legacy continues with memorial fund

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Lucas Williams died in Kuwait serving with the Marine Corps in 1998.

The Bakersfield native was only 19 years old. His mother--wishing to hear his name one more time-- turned her son's memory into a memorial fund for children.

Rosalie Williams started the Lucas James Williams Youth Memorial Fund. Its mission is to help children become more responsible for their actions and become independent individuals all through positive reinforcement.
