We went to high school together. Since we shared a last name, we often got seated near each other. I especially remember gym class - I loved it, John hated it!
Thanks, John, for your sacrifice. We all owe you a lot.

Seventy-nine US troops were killed between 03 and 14 January, together with several hundred known NVA and VC dead.
