Mr. and Mrs. Olson,

I just came across this page today. I was with John, in the same vehicle, the day he passed. It's a moment I re-live everyday. I want to extend a long overdue condolences to you and the rest of your family. I didn't know John very well, but I remember him as an excellent Marine who was always willing to do whatever it took to accomplish the mission. We all relied on his truck platoon on a daily basis to take us to and from operations. Those guys braved the dangerous roads everyday wihtout a word of complaint. I don't know if anyone has ever explained to you what happened that day, why we were there, what we were doing. If you want an explanation feel free to contact me at mvorgang@yahoo.com. My prayers and thoughts will always be with you. Semper Fi.

John,
Man Dude it has been a long time since i have been on here but i never ever forget my brother in arms. Alot has happened. I am no longer in the Marines i got out on Feb 4, 2013. I did 10 1/2 years and came home and Joined the Air Force Nation Guard. I know you would be giving me a bunch of crap right now. I got Married 3 years ago and I have 2 boys. My father passed away over a year ago so i hope you too have met up in heaven with the good lord. I know you watched over me all these years and especially on my last tour in Afghanistan. I miss you man. I am going to try to make another trip to Chicago in the Near Future so your family can meet my wife and kids and so i can stop by and talk to you. I miss you brother

Johnny:
I'm just sitting here thinking of the things I wish I could share with you and all the things that remind me of you. There truly isn't a day that goes by that I do not think of you. I don't know why people say it gets easier, because it doesn't. They cycle just repeats...the holidays, my birthday (the last day I got to talk to you), your anniversary, your birthday, Memorial Day, Mothers and Fathers Day (It's hard to see Mom and Dad hurt without you, 4th of July, HALLOWEEN (I always try to do so many festive things and watch as many scary movies as possible for you), family get togethers and the list can go on and on. It never gets any easier..in fact I think it only gets harder. We have always been such a close family and it just sucks (for a lack of a better word). My future husband and kids really missed out on the best brother in-law and uncle. I constantly think about the future and it isn't going to be as great without you. A part of me is and is going to be so lonely without my big brother in my life. Nothing is like the love and protection from a big brother. Love and miss you always.
