    We graduated in June of 1968. John was a wrestler not sure of the weight class though but I think that it was around the 155 lb. weight class. He was fun to be around and pretty witty as well. I considered him to be a good friend and I was very hurt to hear of his passing. John was the only classmate that we lost in the Vietnam War not sure of how many of our classmates served during this time. I will be visiting your resting place in the near future. Rest in Peace John. AFF

    It was a very sad day for our family when we heard you were killed. We never forgot you and talked of you forever. Broke my Mother's heart to learn this. She was the oldest of 15 and helped raise her siblings. So very proud of you and always carry you in my heart.

    Dear PFC John Thomas Hare, 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
