Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT John Daniel Hoffman, 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

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932

"The Brotherhood"

"The Brotherhood"
As youngsters .. John Hoffman and I attended Lawndale Elementary School in Northeast Philly. Although our paths never crossed again after elementary school .. I was deeply saddened to hear that John did not make it home to Pennsylvania .. safe and sound. I only learned about John's passing this week. My personal tribute is in honor of John's memory .. and dedicated to his family, friends and U.S. Army buddies.
