SPECIAL FORCES, you will NEVER be forgotten.

THEO- Knowing you in the 12th.SFGA(Tacoma,WA) gave many of us a standard to admire & respect. Later, at the 7th.SFGA(Ft.Bragg,NC) during 1967 I was surprised to see you again in preparation for vietnam. You didn't have to re-enlist, but you had a calling and you gave the ultimate in that cause. We still don't understand, but are proud to have served with you and to have known you as a friend. The news of your death didn't catch up with me until some time later and it hit very hard. I went back to the 12th. in 1969 and remember spending one full weekend, with the help of a U.S.Army Reserve landing craft and 15-20 Green Berets, working on your widow's bulkhead and beach stairs at your Vashon Island,WA home. It was the very least we could do for a fallen comrade. May you rest in peace. DE OPPRESSO LIBER.

A man of Beliefs.

J. A. Theodore will be remembered by me until I die. I met in the early 60's on Vashon Isl. He was in the Army Reserves with my husband and I thought at the time that "This was a highly intelligent, talented, creative individual and what in the world was he doing, volunteering for active duty..."Viet Nam". He did and now he's gone. But for those of us who knew him will long remember his well developed sense who he was in the world at large. He believed in participating in his beliefs. I won't ever forget you Theo. You and the rest made my life richer.
