Remembrance/Stu Neiman

I knew Joe from Grammar and High School. I started at UICC but caught pneumonia and had to restart at CCC. Joe always wanted to be in the Army and was in JROTC at Bowen. It's been a long time, but two years ago I was in DC and found his name in the book and paid my respects.

Remembering a fellow officer, friend, and classmate

Joe and I graduated from the University of Illinois Chicago (then UICC) in June 1969...and we were commissioned as 2LT that day. I saw him a few weeks later at the 'bank building' on the southeast side of campus where the ROTC was located. He had his new car, a dark green Ford Fairlane. I had my new car, a red Ford Fairlane. He was heading to Ft Knox (Armor) and in three months I would head to Ft Bliss (Air Defense). We had known each other for 3-years by that time. He was a leader and good and dedicated officer.
I arrived in Vietnam April 1970; he arrived after I had returned and gone to Germany. A mutual classmate, fellow officer, and Vietnam vet located in Stuttgart, Germany, called me in May 1972 to let me know that Joe was reported KIA. That was hard to accept. And after all this time, he is still one of the people I remember and recall on our High Holidays

Remembering an American Hero

Dear Captain Joseph Mike Berkson, 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
