John Sensing----My friend

Posted on 7/18/11 - by Terry Hester
Johnny and I were childhood friends since about the 3rd grade. We lived in the same neighborhood. We graduated from High School together. Johnny was the most loyal friend a person could have. I went to Vietnam in 1968 and came home safely in 1969, about 8 months before Johnny was killed. I never knew any details surrounding Johnnys death until just seeing the posting by James Dalton. I only knew that Johnny was a helicopter pilot. I don't know if that child was a son, but if it was, I believe that John Leslie Dalton would be a grand name. Could be that's the one you used. May God bless you and yours, and may God bless Johnny Sensing.
