Buddies at Ft. Bragg. John and I worked at Ft. Bragg. He was the PIO for the training center and I was to replace him when he shipped out. In the brief time we knew each other, we became friends. When he was ready to leave, he asked me for(I think it was) $78.00 which I was ready to give him without question. He said the money was for a USGI insurance policy for $10,000.00 in which I would be named the beneficiary. I took the money back and told John that I wanted him back home alive so I could visit him on his Dad's peanut farm. I'm so glad I didn't give Johnny the money. I couldn't have lived with myself. I lost a friend and to this day. I still get tears in my eyes when I think about it. Johnny, you were one of the best. It breaks my heart that we lost you. God must have needed a good man up there.
