Best friend

hard to believe it's almost 49 yrs ! I often think about you and all the fun we had at Cleveland jr hi and Central hi . Working on your 54 merc and working at Wheatley pump and valve . I remember when you and Paul went in army and how you wanted me to go also but my Dad had just passed away and I was needed at home for mom and sister. I got my military turn in 68. So many things I'd love to tell you like your younger sister I meet that was looking for info about you. I don't think you knew you had a sister? She didn't find about you till she was older.we'll have lots to talk about some day RIP old friend

Living on in Memory

When the NVA caught us in an open field and their machinegun fire pinned us down, “J. B.” advanced to within meters of their position before he fell. Besides an infectious smile and friendly personality, “J.B.” showed the courage that to this day 47 years later, ignites a sense of pride to have known and served with him.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 John Allan Burleson, 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
