John Druse "Bud" Hawk

Wednesday, August 20, 2014
I am serving in the US Air Force at Pease NH. I run our daily maintenance briefings and every morning I add in a slide covering a day in history or other interesting fact.
Today, when preparing my slide, I came accross the story of John Hawk's medal of honor citation. I will be presenting it in just a few minutes to the maintenance group at 157th ARW.
It is great Americans like John who have exhibited the greatest extent of courage, valor and selflessness that allow the rest of us to enjoy the quality of life we have today.
His life was one full of meaning. We mourn him today.

First of all, Thank you for your service. You were one of my heroes. I really miss you Bud. You were like my second dad. If only I had known you when my dad was alive. You two would have gotten along great. Well, hopefully now you're both sitting by a stream fishing away and talking about the good old days!

Bud was like a second father to me. His daughter, Marilyn, even gave me permission to call him Dad, but I never did. I wish I had known him when my father was alive though. They would have gotten along great. Both were in the Army. Both liked to fish. And, they both had a great sense of humor and bright blue eyes! My deepest condolences to Marilyn and Mark, and the rest of the family. Bud will be greatly missed.

My condolences to the Hawk family. I am the P.E. teacher at Cottonwood Elementary and still use the vaulting box and balance beam he made back in the the late 70's. I always think of him when I'm using the equipment. He gave so much to Central Kitsap School District students and staff in soooooo many ways. Thanks Bud and may the angels be with you.
