Team Player

  • North Arlington, NJ

I first met John in high school.  I was a friend of his sister, Molly.

We didn't date, but we would see each other around school.  He

was a member of the football team.  I don't know what position he

played.  At the end of his senior year he joined the U.S.Marine Corp.

I think he was sent to the Pacific Theater.  We corresponded for awhile

and we dated when he got back.  I had already met someone else, so

sadly I had to refuse to see him any more.  But I was impressed by his

devotion to his family and country.  It came as no surprise to me, when

later I read in the newspaper an account of his bravery under fire in Vietnam,

that he sacrificed his life by substituting for a buddy on that fateful day.

HE WAS A TEAM PLAYER!
