  • A quiet boy

    Posted on 1/15/15 - by Rick Combest rickfcombest@yahoo.com
    I was a high school classmate of Ken's. I knew him because my father was good friends of his family. His mother is Hispanic and I recall some really great meals I shared with Ken and his mom.

    It wasn't until after I joined the Air Force in 1970 that I fully appreciated the sacrifice Ken made for us. The major reason I volunteered to serve was a vain effort to find a cause worthy enough to make sense out of losing Ken.

    I think of you quite often. Such a kind and innocent person. Ken was every bit a product of his mother's nurturing. Kind and soft-spoken, I wish I had made more effort to become a friend. We were more alike than different.

    You will be in my thoughts until the day I die. Your energy runs through me now.

    See you soon Ken!!

    Dear PFC Kenneth Harold Jones, 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.

    With respect, Sir

    Although we only had a short time together, we corresponded often while you were gone for the six months. As I grow older and experience major milestones in my life, I realize that you missed out on those in your life. God bless your soul.
