A True Hero

Jack was the younger brother to my friend Tony who also served with the Big Red One in Nam. Tony and I brought his coffin flag to his former high school, Thomas Edison in Jamaica, where Tony and Jack attended by request of their mother when she passed away. There was a brief ceremony at the flagpole where the Principal had his flag raised for the day, after being placed in the school's trophy case. Jack name is listed on a plaque in the Whitestone Memorial Field, 149th street and 15th drive.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jack Michael Ornelas, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

The Best of the Best, My Brother

I will always remember my brother Jack with his most prized possession which was a 1932 Ford Chevy Coupe with a rumble seat. He drove from New York to California, and while in California broke down in the desert & had to rewire his whole engine. After his passing my mom sold his car to a fellow marine.
