REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR JON FREDERICK WARMBRODT

A true patriot

Jon was the only son of Fred and Alvern Warmbrod. His mother was my daytime mother while my mother was working. I spent most weekdays for three years in their home. Jon was born with a club foot deformity which made it difficult to enlist in the Marines. He so loved his country that he persisted and was finally accepted as a Marine. Jon was very bright and fun loving. I am watching the series on PBS about Vietnam and still grieve the loss of Jon and another childhood friend, Stephan Coalson. I pray that someday I'll be re-united with Jon in Heaven.

A Fine Marine

Jon and I were enlisted Marines at Camp Pendleton when we first met. We were on ECP hold, having been selected for the ECP Commissioning program. He was a bright, energetic young man who wanted to serve his country, his Corps and to get in the fight over in Vietnam. Jon's father was a grounds-keeper for some celebrities, including the actor Glen Ford...a WW II Navy veteran. Glen liked Jon and helped pay for Jon's college education, in fact. I remember he was proud to learn that Jon had become a Marine.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT Jon Frederick Warmbrodt, 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

Classmate at UC Santa Cruz

Jon was a classmate of mine at UC Santa Cruz, 1965-1967. I remember him as a friendly and fun-loving guy with a good sense of humor. I still think it was a terrible waste for Jon - and so many fine young men like him - to loose his life in an undeclared war that really proved nothing. I continue to grieve for Jon.
