Julio Morales Remembers John Baker

"We were soldiers once and young."

Julio Morales has left a new comment on your post "John Baker, Medal of Honor Recipient: Rest in Peac...":

John and I went through the Army Recruiting Course at Fort Benjamin Harrison, IN during the fall of 1972. We were the first group of recruiters sent to the field to recruit for the Volunteer Army... We had rough time trying to recruit young men, however, when the draft and the Vietnam conflict ended during the spring of 73, recruiting was easier... Today, I was thinking about whatever happened to John and found out he died in 1910. Rest in Peace brother. My deepest sympathy to his wife and family. 1SG (Ret) Julio Morales, USA (1959-1991)
