Thank You

Dear PFC Jon La France, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. I researched you on your 51st anniversary, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. For many of us, we have begun Lent. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

I was there when you died.

Jon,

I was there the day you died. I remember what happened as though it was yesterday, even though it was 48 years ago. You were a very new member of our platoon and this should not have happened to you.

I have tried over the years to look for someone I could contact from your family from any references left on The Wall USA, but haven't been able to get in touch with anyone. I hope someone from your family contacts me.

God Bless you and the members of your family who have had to deal with your death all these years.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jon Patrick La France, 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
