 Today we lost another brother to the Vietnam War. We came home in 1968, but we all didn't make it all the way home. We love & miss you brother! Rest in peace brother, until we meet again. I served with John in Cantho, Vietnam in 1967-68.

 Sorry to hear about the passing of John. Have not seen him in many, many years. I always was fond of him. We played basketball together at Benton High School. I was a senior when John was a freshman. John had a great personality and everyone like him. I am sure he will be missed by his friends and family.
