To a Fallen Classmate

I had the pleasure of going to Alleman High School in Rock Island and working with his Father at Bituminous Insurance Company. The fondest memory I have of John that has lingered for over 53 years was his singing of the Sloop John B as part of his presentation for class president. God bless you for the sacrifice you made for me, your fellow classmates and our country.

You Will Always Be Remembered

I was the cook attached to Attack Squadron VA 172. LTJG Golz was a great officer, liked by everybody because he treated everybody with respect. About 2 weeks before his plane crash we met on the mess decks as he was talking with some of the enlisted men in the squadron. Jokingly I mentioned I wish I could fly in one of the A-4 aircraft and take pictures of the bombing runs. He said "go get your camera I'll take pictures for you tomorrow when I go up" ... And he did. I still have those pictures. When I show those pictures to friends and family I tell the story of LTJG Golz. He will always be part of my Vietnam memories. He was a very nice person and a very well respected and well liked officer.
I retired from the Navy after 28 years. LTJG was one of the finest officers I had the privilege to know.
