  • Remembering Pete on this Memorial Day

    Posted on 5/23/15 - by Robert Jones
    Me and Petey were about as close as two could be - cousins, neighbors and buddies. When I came home on leave before going to Vietnam, I was told by family that Pete was killed in Vietnam. I was devastated. His body was sent home and I was one of the pall bearers at his funeral and gave the final salute before he was lowered. I see a posting from a Donnie H. Pearson who was with Pete when he was killed, I would truly like to speak with him....I was searching for someone since he died. Donnie, please contact me if you ever see this, thanks. Bob Jones
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CPL Peter John McCallum Jr, 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

    Pete and I entered a talent contest. We practiced for hours. When the time came, I got stage fright and really messed up the song. While we were good enough to win, Pete took it in stride.
    After high school, I remember going to a pre-induction physical at the Paterson, NJ facility. Pete was in front of me in line. He passed the physical and was drafted. I was not taken that time or three other times I went.
    When I learned about Pete's death in Vietnam, I was sad and guilty. His parents were bitter and Pete's father took to the bottle for comfort in losing his son. I had to avoid Pete's Dad because he always appeared mad at me that I was alive and Pete had not survived Vietnam.
    Of course, the guilt has remained; however, I know that my memories of Pete and the great times we had in high school, singing in glee club, and other various fun times will forever be a part of my good memories of Pete.
    I went to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation. There, I made a rubbing of Pete's name. I found a high school class photo of Pete that was taken only three years prior to his death in action. Hopefully, it will be posted here on his memorial page. Good bless you, Pete! I know you had to grow up faster than you wanted and you are a hero in my heart forever!
