  • I remember

    Peter spent part of his youth in my hometown, a NYC suburb. I remember we both got stuck in an after school "ballroom dance" class by our mothers. We both got tossed for being, um, non-compliant. The dare was who could tailor sit and then walk on their knees the best. I think we were around 9 or so, definitely elementary school.
    Age 19, too young to die. RIP Peter.

    I came to Medfield from Canada and Peter filled my two years there with laughter and support. I hated that stupid war, that was never really a war and too many wonderful young men died there.l Jim Fraser was a friend of mine and was going to become a priest before the war took him away. I would give any thing to change the history that made these important lives cut short. I hope there is a heaven and that I will meet up with Peter and James and the other 150,000 people who died for no reason. I think of them every single day and never stop wishing they were here with us. My life is better for knowing Peter, he gave me a place to be safe in a world that was strange for me..

    I didn't get to know you much given how much older you were and how infrequently the clan would get together but I am proud of you and your service and my siblings have all been to the Memorial and sought out your name.

    Dear PFC Peter Frank Kristof, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud. With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.
