Youth as a child growing up with. A Great Friend!

John and his brother Jim I grew up with in McKeesport, PA.
We had great times together.
John went into the Army and I went into the Marines.
My Family never told me of my Friend's death until I returned home from Viet Nam. I only regret I didn't bring him home.
I just reunited with his Brother and can now share John.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC John Michael Galata, 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

If I should die...remembrances for PFC John Miuchael GALATA, USA...Greensburg's bravest of heroes!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vgiils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

For PFC John Michael GALATA, USA...a soldioer from Greensburg who sacrificed his tomorrows!!!!!!!!!!

He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
He loved us so.
Every day in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so!
He was our defender, and he kept us free!
He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
He loved us so, and we should know.
For we loved him so. He was one brave soldier who gave his all. It is said that all gave some, and SOME GAVE ALL! I believed that Jill Corey would be proud of this Greensburg soldier who went out to defend liberty everywhere.
