    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor John.
  • Tonia's Godfather, Fred's Best Friend

    Posted on 11/29/16 - by Ruby/Fred
    I remember your face and smile, like stars shining on a dark night that lit up the sky. You were so respectful and loyal as my child's father's best friend. The day he chose you to be it I said yes, perfect choice! Then you were off to Vietnam. Then gone so suddenly. It hurt Fred deeply. I could not believe it until I saw your name on the Memorial wall while visiting D.C. I cried as could finally believe you were gone. Our friend and godfather really did die in Vietnam. That beautiful heartfelt smile will always be a memory. Ruby and Fred..and Tonia.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC John T Fudge, 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

  • I Will Always Remember You

    I sat in front of John in civics class in the mid-60s. In 1969, I was shocked to see that he had been killed in a place called Vietnam and left behind a young son. I will never forget him or the conflict in which he perished.
