John joined the Marine Corp in 1966 and fought bravely for his country in the Vietnam War. He was wounded and awarded a purple heart. Everyone who knew John knew how proud he was to be a marine and he was one until the day he died. He even said, when he died, he would join others in standing guard at the gates of heaven.
