The clipping below from several Syracuse area papers, announces the death of SGT Andrew P Stein in Vietnam. At the time of his death, SGT Stein was survived by his mother, Pearl G Stein, father, Andrew P Stein, Sr and five brothers (Christopher S, Matthew P, Adam Charles, Neil, and Richard). The family was living on Division Street in Syracuse at the time.

Also included in the article was the announcement for SP4 Patrick G R Bridenbaker, Stockton, New York. He died when he apparantly fell from the crane. He was found laying next to the crane with a fatal head injury.


The clipping below was published in the local Syracuse Herald-Journal newspaper on Monday, August 23, 1993 upon the visit by The Moving Wall to Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool New York.

His mother, Pearl Gehres-Stein was there to honor and remember her son, which meant a lot to her.


The article above also mentions PFC John Richard Horton, from Liverpool New York, who was killed in a firefight during his first month in Vietnam.

A little more background information for the family shows the following information about Andrew's mother: "Pearl Stein Enders, 87, of Melbourne, Florida, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, June 3, 2010. Pearl, a lifelong resident of Central New York, moved to Florida eight months ago to be with family."

"Pearl, a graduate of North High School, worked at Western Union and was sent to work in Washington, D.C. during World War II. She also worked in Syracuse University's film library for 17 years. Pearl was an active Gold Star Mother. During the 1960s and '70s she wrote numerous articles about the Vietnam war that were featured in newspapers around the country. Pearl's love of writing has been appreciated by many, as her works have been published in Blue Mountain Arts cards and books, and is on permanent display at The New York State Fair's Veterans Memorial."

"She was predeceased in 2009 by her husband, Dr. Joseph Enders; in 1994 by her first husband, Andrew P. Stein; sons Andrew Jr., Matthew, and Adam; and her sister Jean Fonda. "

"Pearl is survived by her sons Neal Stein, Richard Stein and Christopher Stein; her brother, Carl Gehres; five grandchildren and several nieces and nephews."

Research shows that Matthew, died in California at age 31 on April 5, 1988. Adam was serving with 24th Infantry Division in 1988 and passed away in 2009.

Pearl Stein Enders, Andrew P. Stein (A World War II and Korean Veteran), and Andrew Paul Stein, Jr. are buried in Assumption Cemetery, Syracuse, New York.
