    Dear PFC John Busch,
    I hope your photo is put here because this wall of faces needs yours. Thank you for your service as a Field Artillery surveyor. It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear PFC John Edward Busch, 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

    Dear John,

    I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. As a class challenge, I am remembering all those who have willingly gave up their lives for this country. I can’t imagine the hardships you encountered or even begin to realize what you went through. You are a hero to all and will not be forgotten. Thank you John.
