To Uncle John,
I never knew you but I understand you and my dad were pretty close. He told me about you when I was younger. I am proud you are my uncle. I cherish your Purple Heart, Bronze Star and an 8by10 picture of you early in your career. I will see you and my POPS on the other side someday.

God bless you guys.
