Final Mission of CPL John C. Holoka

CPL John C. Holoka served with Lima Company, 3/5th Marines. He was killed on July 22, 1966, when his position was mortared during the fighting in Operation Hastings. CPL Holoka survived being carried off the hill to an LZ so he could be medevacked. A buddy carrying the wounded checked on Holoka each time he brought new wounded into the LZ. The last time he saw him Holoka was mumbling, “Sorry mom, sorry…” CPL Holoka died on board the medevac helicopter. [Taken from limathreefive.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL John Charles Holoka, 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
