Remembering John the day he left for OCS

I was stationed with John in Pensacola Fla. at the Naval Communications Training
Center, Co. K USMC. I liked John. A good guy. I remember the day he said goodbye
to me just before leaving for OCS. I thought he would make a fine officer. When I heard he was KIA I got sick. I wish him well up there in Marine Heaven. Condolences to his family on this Memorial Day. God bless you John.

Till Valhalla Brother.

I was John's room mate at Correy Field in Pensacola. We were both Corporals so we had a 2 man room instead of living in squad bays. John got orders to Sebana Seca, Puerto Rico and turned them down to wait orders to OCS. I was next in line and I was sent to PR. Saw his face in the 1969 Faces of the dead issue of Life magazine. Very sad!
