Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 2/1/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
 
Dear SP4 John Paul Barsch, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

John Paul, I was stationed, in Dong Ha, Viet Nam, when you were sent, to the Wall. I lost two friends there, on December 14, 1967, just ten days, after arriving in-country. After the war, I lived in Garfield, NJ. and likely crossed the path, of your spirit, many times. Rest in peace, brother. Blessings, to your family. George Toriello, USNMCB-5, RVN., '66-'68.

Your son
I was only 3, years old, when you died. Mom remarried and it wasn't til, many years later, that I was told, of you. Out of respect, for her feelings, I never asked, to many questions. Over the years, I've wondered, about you. What you were, like and how our lives, would have been, had you survived, were some thoughts. Reading, the other messages left here, makes me glad to know, there are others, who still remember and think of you, also. I just wanted to say, hello and to thank you, for the sacrifice, you made. Your son Allan

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings, Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things. You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung, high in the sunlit silence, hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long delirious, burning blue I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace, where never lark, or even eagle flew, and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand and touched the face of God.

 Your life is not forgotten
John, Although we never met,
I just want you to know you are
not forgotten. You gave the ultimate
sacrifice, your life for what you believed
in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you
for protecting the freedoms we enjoy
today.
John, I read the note from your son, and I know you must be proud of him and still are watching over him. God bless you both
