John (Jack) Hayes

A friend of my brother-in-law Duane, who also served in Vietnam. I remember him well. Another brother Mike text me about Jack because he is at the Memorial and planning to look up Jack tomorrow, coincidentally tomorrow is the anniversary of Jack’s death. Also our Dad’s birthday. RIP Thank you, Jack. Roberta Lammers

Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. It is Easter week and Passover. The war was years ago, but we all need to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC John Cook Hayes, 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
