I never knew my Uncle Bernie Jack. He is a hero to me, as well as his brothers in arms, because of the sacrifices they made for the country that we love so much.

I have been honored by being given my uncle's name and I try every day to honor his memory by my actions. To those brave warriors who knew my uncle and served with him I envy you.

God Bless you all and God Bless America.

Michael Leo Doane and my Uncle Jack, who were killed the same day.
