High School Buds

John's father was an Army Colonel stationed at the Pentagon and he graduated from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia. We were wrestling teammates and after graduation John stayed with us duing the summer as his father had been transferred to Fort Hood, Texas. Actually from Oklahoma, he is listed as being from Michigan because at the time of his death his father was the Commander of the active contingent at the Selfridge, MI base and John was burried at the base cemetery. At the time John was killed, I was also an Army Lieutenant serving elsewhere in Vietnam.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT John Harland Farley, 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
