REMEMBRANCES

You don't know me.

Dearest Patrick, I was a
roommate of your sister, Marian, while we were in the Army at Ft Benning Georgia and after our honorable discharges in FWB Florida. She spoke of you often and told me you were MIA in Vietnam. I was so saddened by this. Though, Marian and I went our separate ways,
Marian and I still keep in touch after all these years. When I had an opportunity to visit the Vietnam War memorial in DC, I searched for your name and made a rubbing of it. It was proudly displayed in my home.
You will never be forgotten Patrick. Your sacrifice like so many others was honorable. May you rest in peace Patrick.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear PFC John Patrick Collopy, sir,

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter
