Seeking family of John B Thompson

My name is Todd Parks, and my father served in Vietnam with John Thompson in 67-68. He is greatly interested in visiting John's grave and communicatinf with his family if any are still around. I saw on here that he is buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Eden, NY. I was curious also if someone could confirm that for me before we make the trip from West Virginia. He greatly wants to visit John's grave this summer as it's been a wish on his heart for some time. If anyone can help me out, my email is mrparkscmhs@gmail.com

With respect, Sir

Never Forgotten

FOREVER REMEMBERED

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."

Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heroes lost to the War in Vietnam:

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers
