Thank You

As an up and coming Marine I would just like to say thank you for your sacrifice. If it wasn't for people like you this country wouldn't be what it is today.

NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN

John Wilt couldn't wait to join the Marines. He was visiting his mother in Texas when she agreed to sign for him to join the Marines on his 18th birthday. From all reports he was a gung-ho Marine. He died in a firefight 4 1/2 months before his 20th birthday.
Preston County, West Virginia and particularly his friends from Newburg High School will not forget him. He is featured in a book, NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN; PRESTONIANS WHO DIED IN VIETNAM, which I wrote about the seventeen men from Preston County who gave their life in a country half-way around the world.
