Thank you for your Service

RIP Brother. I have read several accounts of that day in Laos. On this Memorial Day 2018, we remember your sacrifice as well as those who perished from your crew on February 19, 1968. Fred Zabitosky was a friend from my hometown. God Bless you all.

It's been 50 years, my Friend

Hi Johnny, 50 years ago in January/February 1968, we saw each other for the last time. It was a life-long friendship that started in high school and Civil Air Patrol, then went to Army basic training, crew-chief school, flight school and Vietnam. When I returned to Kontum in March '68 and went to you hootch to see what's up, I saw your bunk rolled up and was told of your death. There's not a day that's gone by I haven't thought of you since that time. I came across a photo of you that I'd snapped on the helipad at Kontum. I've often wondered how you'd look now. My son has your name; your parents were his God-parents. Be well my friend, we will see each other again.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear WO John W Cook, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
