Served with John Hayhurst at Camp Zama CID, Japan, from 1957-1959 along with Larry Matsuo, Ace Adkins, Bob Buckles, Ben Malinowski, Willis Leaverton,Ray Dahle and Owen Barnes, all of whom have gone to the Great Beyond. John was a good friend, a very hard worker and always pleasant. He was the epitome of what a CID Agent should always strive to be. Rest in Peace John. Carl Craig
