    John Edward was the brother of a classmate of mine, Sam Cook. Our family and the Cooks were family friends. We were heartbroken when Edward was killed and we cannot begin to imagine the heartbreak his family felt. We will always be grateful for the sacrifice of the Cook family for our country!! They are our heroes!

    He requested letters and my letter stood out to him, I came across the article and decided to attempt to find him. Sadly I found him here, and he is no longer us. God rest his soul and his honor of being an American solder.

    I will meet Sp 5 John E Cook, in heaven one day.
