REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR JOHN CURTIS BURDEN

Teammate

I remember John well. His senior picture does not due his smile justice. He was easy going and quick to praise his teammates. He had a great sense of humor and his smile was honest and ever present. I remember several times Coach Walls had me catch him as he warmed-upped. My hand always felt has if it was going to bruise. He threw hard, even just getting loose. I know he had to make our rivals feel small throwing from that mound, especially at Madisonville Park; I do not remember one time in the three years I knew him John ever being anything other than supportive of his Maroon teammates. With age I often wonder what if? Of course we will ever know but I do he made a great impression on me.

Coincidence?

Oddly enough, I enlisted in the Navy to become a Corpsman on 8/16/67, the day before John was KIA.

Rest easy, Brother. You stand relieved and I have the watch.
