What could have been?
Today I will be speaking at my daughter's high school. They have been studying the Viet Nam War, and I was asked to share my experiences. This has turned my thoughts to John for the thousandth time. I was next to him when he got hit, and helped carry him out of the field of fire along with our platoon sgt. Nolan James and a medic. That was the worst time. My thoughts usually go to the good times. John had a great sense of humor, very dry, much like mine and we would laugh together as we poked fun at the army and all it's foibles.Today I wonder about the life John should have had. I have no doubt he would have been a success, but that's material. He should have known the joy of falling in love, marrying and having children. I'll tell the girls about John today, he is not forgotten. Rest in Peace Brother.

I went to school with John all 12 Years. He was a very quiet boy. Never in trouble to speak of . Sorry he had to perish this way so far from home. May God rest your soul John. Paula (Baus) Kiko
