  • In Memory - from the Ashley County Register

    Posted on 12/1/17 - by Mary DeWitt
    Marine Pfc John Wayne Greene, 21, became the fifth Ashley County soldier to die in Vietnam on July 4, 1968. He was the son of Mrs. Joyce Etheridge Greene of Lake Village, although he lived at various times with Mr. and Mrs. Ira Greene of Crossett, his aunt and uncle. Born June 15, 1947, he enlisted in the Marine Corps, and his tour of duty began October 14, 1967.

    Greene had been wounded during the siege of Khe Sanh on June 28. His wounds had not been thought to be serious, but he died of pneumonia in a hospital at Quang Nam, South Vietnam. Greene was also survived by his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Etheridge of Crossett.

    Dear CPL John W Greene, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
