I met Bruce as a junior high football player in Glen Ellyn. I remember watching him play for the Glenbard West Hilltoppers, and I especially remember how hard he hit. I wanted to be just like him.I remember how big his hand looked when he put it out to shake mine. I wondered why this big man on campus would show an interest in a kid like me. It always bothered me that Bruce had the poor timing to play at Illinois at the same time Dick Butkus played at the same position.With his inspiration I went on to play college football. Though I wasn't able to serve I have two sons who played college football and serve our country as career officers in the Army and Marines. They have both fought in Afghanistan. I ride with the Patriot Riders and Bruce's name is embroidered on my vest... I ride in his honor. His legacy lives on in my family and his life continues to inspire many. He will not be forgotten! - Dick Burton

It's been many years now since John gave up his life for his fellow man and country. My cousin Pfc. Robert Emmett Jones was one of the Marine's in John's patrol and he also lost his life that dreadful day. His father was so distraught that he died one year and one day after his son was KIA. His mother is 87 yrs. old now and has grieved, wanting to be with her son again. He was her only child. I know how hard it must have been and may still be for John's family to lose their loved one. The men who lost their lives that day will always be remembered by me and I thank them all for their ultimate sacrifice and service. John, tell my cousin I will see him again one day soon and it will be a pleasure to meet you. R.I.P Semper-Fi.
