  • My Father, One of America's Hero's

    Posted on 5/15/18 - by Stefan V. Fudge (a.k.a "PeeWee", a.k.a "Lil Pete")
    Hello dad, it's me PeeWee a.k.a Lil Pete and it's been 49 years since your departure from this life as well as mine. I wish I could speak of memories of you like everyone else but you were 20 years old and I was a mere 8 months old when you were killed in Vietnam back in July of 1969 but let me just tell you that as a kid growing up I use to always hear about what an awesome loving, kind and caring person you were and now when I read the post of people who new you personally and even those who were there with you when you died in Vietnam. It gives me great pleasure to say to you that I'm proud to be your son and to also say thank you for being my father. I'm almost 50 years old now and the only regret I have in life is never getting to know you. I truly believe that my life would have had so much more meaning had I been afforded the opportunity to grow up with you in my life, as a matter of fact I never did get that roller skating thing down packed like you and "Peter Pan" had back in the day but I managed to survive the skating rink era of my teenage years. I could go on and on forever talking to you about my life and maybe I will at a later date but for now I just wanted to reach out and say thank you to all of the wonderful people who have stopped by your page to show you love and pay thier respect to you, "One of America's Hero's"!!!

    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.
