To my cousin Jack

I remember what a great athlete you were and how good looking you were. I regret so much time elapsed before your remains were recovered so many years after you were reported missing in action and all that occured to your mother, father, and Bobby during that bad time !!!
God must be happy to have his choir boy with him in heaven.

I still remember you Jack...often.

I was in flight school at Williams AFB with Jack (class 7002). A group of us rented apartments in Tempe, near the university, and spend a hectic year of flight school trying to have fun in the village and still make the 5AM flight-line calls. Hal King called me sometimes in the summer of 1970 and told me that Jack had bought the farm in an O-2. He was the first in our class to go down. He was listed as missing for a long time, and we always hoped he'd put all that Blue Zoo knowledge to use and crawl out of the jungle some day. We shared lots of fine times around the apt. pool with some very fine women. Jack tried to make up for all the time he lost at the Academy in the "social graces" area. He shared his place with Bruce Gerrity, another Academy grad. It was sometimes party central. I spent my time flying out of Thailand in C-130s in 71-72. I guess what I want to say to Jack's family and other friends is that I think of him very very often... I have two sons and a daughter, all are athletes. For the last ten years, everytime I'm at one of their games (football, basketball, rugby) and the National Anthem is played, I think of Jack. I know he didn't have any kids, and I think to myself at that very special time, watching my kids stand on the field or court, that this is what it was all about...watching my kids. I always invite Jack's soul to share in my joy and pride as I watch my kids stand tall as the Anthem is played... It's something very special that he never got a chance to do.
