    Dear 1LT John Robert Hagood, 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

    I believe I went through Infantry Officers Basic course at Ft Benning in 1968 with LT Hagood. May God rest his soul.

    I was the Company Clerk in Lt. Hagood's company at Fort McClellan, AL in 1969. Lt. Hagood was on his first assignment out of OCS. We became friends.

    Shortly before he was levied to RVN he and his wife had a child. He told me then that he did not expect to see his son grow up. He did not. I would like to find that young man to tell him what he was like and how much he loved him.

    If anyone knows how I can contact him or his Mother, please let me know.
