My son

First, let me thank you for doing this and all the good work that you do. Jack and all of the others would be proud you remembered the,. Jack was one of nine children. He was born 2 and a half years after his older brother Roy was killed in Germany in 1945 during WWII. Jack was the youngest in the family. They never met each other and yet their lives were so similar. Jack knew and loved Roy as we all did from stories and photos we showed him. Out of the five brothers Roy and Jack were 6'4' tall. They both fought and died in wars a generation apart. ow they march in Halls where all great heroes march. In heaven together.

It is like yesterday

Hi Jack,
This is Richard Wells it has been a long time for me to get this far. I remember you almost daily. I remember how well you took care of me as a little Marine that I was. I'm no longer little.
I remember meeting you for the first time in Hawaii, at the "Big House", after you had been wounded once in Nam. Where we became MP's at Pearl Harbor. I remember the times we had there. I remember how happy I was when I got orders to Nam when I turned 18, and you told me not to be a hero. I remember when you wrote me and told me you were coming to Nam to 4th marines. I knew that wasn't good. You were a big guy my friend/brother and you had a heart bigger than most. I hope to make it to where all you good marines are one day. Semper Fidelius my friend and brother.

Honoring You

I chose your name from the CT map painted in our school which lists the soldiers from our state that lost their lives in Vietnam. As part of the Capt. Nathan Hale Middle School posting project, I would like to honor the sacrifice you made for our country. Thank you for your bravery for the cause of freedom.
