One Of The Nicest Guys I Ever Met

I will never forget the day. I met up with some friends on the grounds of Kellogg Elementary School, just across the street from where you lived. You were a year older than me. Your sister Mariann was in my class and, like you, was one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

As my friends and I approached each other one of them exclaims, "John Guldan was killed in Vietnam!" My heart sunk and I got a lump in my throat. I was told you volunteered for one last mission before coming home.

The quiet guy I knew with the perpetual smile on his face was gone. Your memory will never fade. I've talked about you often over the years, about this soft-spoken nice guy who went to Vietnam and volunteered for dangerous missions.

Most of us never knew that side of you, John. You came across as someone mature beyond his years, someone you could talk to about anything and who always left you feeling better. Your calm demeanor was a sedative in our crazy teenage lives. We didn't hang around much but the impact of our time together affected me in a positive way forever.

It's been over 46 years but that moment and all the emotions and memories are permanently imprinted in my mind and the minds of so many of us who knew you. Thanks for being a part of my life.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL John Anthony Guldan, 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
