Wonderful young man.

I recall the heart-wrenching day that several officers came to the office of his father, John B. Nahan II, in Allegan, MI and asked to speak with him. I knew, and I could hardly open the door to Mr. Nahan's office. Very sad day. I remember later, he dictated a heart breaking letter to one of his close friends who lived out of state. Even though Mr. Nahan was the father of thirteen children, it matters not. He was never the same but is now 98 years old and I am sure still mourns this horrific loss.

You are not forgotten

Dear Johnny, you were gone from us so soon, just 22 years old, your life had barely begun. I think of you often still and the sweet times we shared, especially I remember the joy we felt the day in Sept. 1963 when I was16 and you were 18 and we went horseback riding at your house near MIner Lake. The early autumn day was golden, the sunshine was golden too as was the godenrod that bloomed all over the fields we rode in. And now the memory of that day is golden as well. Whenever I am home I visit your grave and leave some flowers there for you. It's not far from where you used to live and where we went horseback riding that day so long ago. You were a very special boy....

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL John Benedict Nahan III, 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
