To my brother in arms,
Your sacrifice for your country and freedom is honored and remembered by the 3rd Squadron, Fifth Armored Cavalry Regiment as well as the American people. The fact that you gave your life for a cause you believed in will serve as a reminder to the world that war is terrible and should always be a last resort to preserve the freedom and right to unrestricted life that exists for every American.
This Wall of names, memorializing our fallen brothers, fathers, sisters and mothers, friends, co-workers, neighbors, acquaintances and others, stands as a monument to your deeds of heroism.
You cannot and will never be forgotten ...
We thank you and love you!
We still miss you, Jack. So glad that we were friends. Thank you for your sacrifice. Love, Hollis & Virginia
From his friends,
Though you died six days before I was born,
My son, like me, carries your name,
Stories of you a few I have heard,
I too went to war but my body survived,
A little disturbed and emotionally scarred,
With valor and grit you put up a fight,
I hope in sleep at peace may you rest,
From the son of a friend,
