Thank You

Dear PFC John Brown,
Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. I grew up in NYC too. It is another summer, as time continues to pass since Vietnam. It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Thinking about you Johnny

Recalling all those times I'd be dropped off at your house for breakfast before we'd serve early Mass at Christ the King before school. I always set up a flag each year in your name with Rotary's Flags for Heroes - not much I suppose but all these years later, not much one can do other than to keep the memory alive and the sacrifice recognized.. They are out and waving here in Georgetown and Millsboro through July 4th, so you're more "in the present" than normally God bless you all John for lives not lived. .

Basketball Star at Port Richmond High School

I have been looking for stories about John Brown for many years and am happy to see this remembrance of him after looking for so long. We were classmates at Port Richmond High School, class of 1966 and when he was a senior, he was the best outside shooter, if not the best basketball player on the team. Although shorter than many of the other players he always played with heart and was a catalyst for the many wins Port Richmond had in 1966. I did not see him much after graduation, although I heard he had joined the Army in 1967. I always wondered why he didn't get a scholarship somewhere, he was that good. Reading through his history, I see he was killed during the Tet Offensive of 1968, one month after arriving in country and with less than a year in the Army. He was killed 6 days after I entered Basic Training. It wasn't until years later that I learned of his passing. He was a good friend and I always admired his positive attitude, infectious spirit and comradery. He gave his life for his country and i hope to see him memorialized at the 50 year reunion in 2016. God Bless John T. Brown.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC John Thomas Brown, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
