John J. Buleza, Jr.
On April 26, 2018, the world lost a loving family man, a proud veteran, a hero, father, grandfather, and the most loved person I’ll ever know. John J. Buleza Jr. served in the Army as a communications repairman, specialist fourth class, and fought for our country in Vietnam from January 1964 to June 1966. During his service with the military he manned top-secret communications when President Lyndon B. Johnson was in Korea and during his tour, his responsibility was to make sure messages got through to our troops. He was proud to have trained with the 50th Signal Group with the Army’s 82nd Airborne; served with the 39th Signal Battalion in Vietnam; served with the clandestine Studies and Operations Group (SOG); and served in STRATCOM — out of the Pentagon. During his lifetime and activities as a veteran he achieved the honor of being one of the longest serving members of the Schuylkill County Vietnam Veterans Post 29 color guard. John proudly supported and participated in numerous veteran organizations and programs. He was an active life member of the Robert E. Baker Post #38 American Legion, life member of the VFW, and life member of the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc., Schuylkill County - Post #29. One of his proudest accomplishments was helping to establish the Schuylkill County Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Schuylkill Haven. He will be greatly missed. Welcome home.
