Thank you for all you have done!
REST IN PEACE.
I'm proud of our Vietnam Veterans
50th Anniversary of Commander John Abbott's Shootdown
A few years ago I visited The Wall... not truly knowing anyone listed there, I decided to pick the very first name connected to the Navy from my hometown of San Diego. Your name was first - I then found out you were on the Kitty Hawk as was our Dad M. M. Casey, Jr. as an aviator.
Then a few years on I had the honor, though it wasn't easy, to read your name on my list during the anniversary reading of the names.
You are truly missed and I know you are watching over your family and friends.
Thanks again and Eternal Father please rest Captain Abbott's soul in peace always.
Remembering an American Hero
Dear Captain John Abbott, 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
