  • My Dear Friend Harlan

    Posted on 3/16/18 - by Allen Jones
    You and I were joined together at Temple Junior College when you played basketball and I captained the golf team. I will never forget your kind spirit, your competitiveness but most of all your graciousness! I read of your passing in early 1969 and I arrived in Vietnam just a few months later. You will always remain on my mind until we see each other again.

    Dear Sp4 Harlan Craft,
    Thank you for your service as an Armor Reconnaissance Specialist. It is Presidents' Weekend, and good time to remember those who serve. It is so important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I grew up in Temple, Texas and I was one of Harlan's many friends. We had a shared a competition in athletics and Harlan excelled at every sport he tried. It's been more than fifty years since Harlan went off to fight in that war . . . the memory of his face has never changed in my mind. R.I.P my friend - you are not forgotten . . .

    We went to school together at Reagan Elementary...We ran and played together in the school yard.

    You attended several of my birthday parties.... I will never forget you!!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Harlan Merdean Craft, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir
