Good friend in college and fellow marine

John and I were friends at NAU even though we were in different fraternities. When we graduated John could have gotten a deferment but believed it was his duty to serve. We both went to OCS and when I heard from some other marines up north that he was killed ,I had an empty heart .

My good freind

John and I were in OCS together, along with Larry Beck, who was also KIA in VN. The three of were best friends and were very supportive of each other throughout the 10 weeks. Larry and I were both from Oklahoma.

I was having trouble with the runs at first. John told me he could show me a way to run that would be a lot easier. Because of his athletic ability and knowledge he took the time after PT each day and showed me how to strengthen my upper body and breath much easier. After that I was gone to the races. We ran side by side for all the runs after that.

We shared a fighting hole on one of our training exercises. It was cold that night. I can still hear John saying, "Geez, it's really cold out here tonight." I kidded him saying, "How can someone from Minot, ND say it's cold here?"

We went to DC on liberty one weekend and ended up having a beer at one of the local bars. Well, they saw our short haircuts and began the jokes about Marines. One patron said he would by us a beer if we could do 30 push-ups. We both dropped to the floor and began pumping. John was already up taking his first sip of beer when I finally finished.

I was at Travis AFB awaiting my flight to VA when I picked up a Stars and Stripes paper. In the taps section I was sad to see the names of both John and Larry. They were great friends and outstanding Marines. I have rub offs from the VN wall,of their names, plus two of my men who were also KIA attached to the picture, "Reflections" in my office. The picture of a VN vet in his suit leaning against the wall with the reflections of his brothers in the background.

I'm glad I finally found the site I could leave a message about John. I still think of him often. Semper Fi
