John, I want to thank you for proudly and unselfishly serving your country. it is unfortunate that you gave the ultimate sacrifice but your loyalty has allowed me to live my life and raise my children in a country that I am very proud of.

I am saddened that I had never had the pleasure of meeting you, your Brother Richard Hanson (my Dad) speaks of you with great regard as a brother and a soldier.
