I Remember John

I just found a letter from John from 1964. He had just moved to Seaside, OR. I knew him at Clackamas High. Such a sweet, great guy. I will never forget him.

Our brother, John

Dear John, Our family was so split on whether you should go to war or not, however, once you were deployed you were devoted to protecting your buddies. We all loved you so much and were shocked but resigned when we received your final letter saying that you had re-upped for another term. You didn't get that chance but we understood then the level of your compassion. We continue to love you and miss you.
