Best Friend

John and I enlisted in the USAF in August 1967. I grew up with John in San Gabriel, California and went to school with him. While at Bien Hoa Air Base in January 1970, I contacted John at his assignment at Vung Tau, telling him I was looking forward to meeting up with him while we both were in-country. I was re-assigned from Bien Hoa to Phu Cat Air Base on March 9th, 1970. The first letter I received there from home was from my mother telling me that John Piner had died in Vietnam. I was devastated. John died serving his country honorably and with dedication. He was not only my best friend, but my fellow brother in arms. I know I will meet up with you again in the hereafter.
