PFC. JOHN D. AMOS II
Pfc. John D. Amos loved the beach, sitting by a campfire and he loved his family. Some day he wanted to be a police officer. A suicide car bomber detonated two artillery shells in April, 2004 and John was killed in action in Iraq. Today there are soldiers alive because of the courageous actions of John Amos.
His best friend misses him and struggles with the loss every day.
Thank you John - for being a best friend - for being on this earth - and for giving your life for people you never knew. Thank you for coming into my life years after your death. I will not forget you and I will not forget what you gave.
"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again."
