Johnny was my pal growing up in Fayetteville, NC. He loved the Army and I think he would have made it a career if he God had not called him home. He died for his fellow man. Nothing more has to be said. We'll meet again in heaven. God bless your memory my old friend. I'll always remember me riding Johnnie on the handlebars of my bicycle through East Fayetteville. He was my pal and I'll never forget him. God just called him home a little early. Old pal of mine. I dont know when but I'll see you again one day, and if there's bicycles in heaven I'll ride you on the handlebars. Charles Bruce Porter, Fayetteville, NC 28301.

Friend/Boys home boy: Johhny was a fighter. All he ever wanted to be was a soldier. I didn't serve with him but I bet he had his buddies back. Thank's for the ultimate sacrifice old friend. You are not forgotten. Gene Cheek, PO Box 234, Newton, NC 28658.

Johnny, I will always remember in the 1st grade, you and I used to pal around, and I would keep the bullies off your back. Thanks for returning the favor old friend. Michael Elkins, 4725 Inwood Road, Raleigh, N.C. 27603, mjelkins@bellsouth.net.
