    Dear SGT Jean Mason Kraus, 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

    After reading your story in "Dreams Unfulfilled", I just wanted to thank and honor you for your bravery, commitment, service to your country and the ultimate sacrifice you made. May you be resting in peace with all of God's angels. God Bless You
  • My cousin

    Jean, you were my older cousin. As a child I always had a huge crush on you. They told me you had been killed in Vietnam when I was a 2LT nurse at Madigan Hospital,Ft Lewis WA. A month later I recieved my orders for Nam. I survived and have greatly and continuously mourned your death. I remember a gentle soul, an art teacher who painted beautiful still lifes in oil and water colors. You loved children and looked forward to going back to teach them. You weren't meant to be a soldier, though I'm sure you were a good one. This world lost a special treasure when you left.
