My Friend

I was serving in Korea when the letters stopped coming from John. The reason should have been obvious, but it did not occur to me, or subconsciously I would not let it occur to me. I thought to myself: He has a fiancee and parents who need to hear from him more than I do, and so he is writing to them. I'll see him soon. We had entered active duty the same day at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, with the same active duty commitment, so we were to be discharged the same day. We would reunite, marry the women we loved, and begin our careers and adult lives. It was only after I returned to the U.S. and was released from active duty that I learned of his death. So only one of us married, had a career, had children, and grandchildren. No more than a few days have ever passed without my thinking of him.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT John Thomas Coll Jr, 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
