    John was my roommate in OCS. A great guy. Miss his Rhodesian stories. Real sense of humor.
  • "Benning School for Boys" -- with John Driver

    Posted on 6/7/17 - by Edward R. Torres onetexas_2000@yahoo.com
    I met John Driver at the affectionately called "Benning School for Boys" -- Officer Candidate School, Fort Benning -- beginning in 1968, graduating on Feb 11, 1969...

    "Driver" had more military experience than the cadre, but fulfilled his role as a candidate with gusto and respect... I saw him as a classmate, but also as one of whom I could ask advice and encouragement, in times of hardship...

    I recall once when I was assigned to be the student XO, I immediately knew that whenever I might have a question about something, although he was not in my platoon, I could assuredly ask him for support, and he would oblige! And he always did...

    Someone else mentioned about his at times hand salute from a different army and from a different continent -- he could be serious, but had a good sense of humor and at times, such as with the hand salute, he would show it... He was all around a superb soldier.

    After OCS we all went our separate ways, but I have never forgotten "Driver", and with his loss, his family and all of us lost an unforgettable human being...

    My condolences to his family... Our nation is eternally indebted to John and to his family...

  • My Father

    On this memorial day 47 years after my fathers passing, it's a great honor to read the rememberances of those who knew him. I never met my father, I waas born just 2 months after he was gone. Growing up, I only had my mothers memories to know him by, not the men who served with him. Thank you all for these insights into the man my father was. I'm proud to carry on his name.

    I met John Driver at the reception center, Ft. DIX, N.J. in April of 1964. Went to 8 weeks of Basic Training with him (same Barracks) and was honored to serve with him in Viet-Nam in 1966. He was a good friend and a great "SOLDIER"
