I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Agnew at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France in April of 2007. I even was able to get a picture with him that is very dear to my heart. You are a true American HERO! May GOD Bless You Jack!
Summer Lashley, M.S.

Though I've never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Agnew, I, on behalf of my father, Ret. Staff Sgt. Louis O. Perdomo (94 years old) of Merrill's Maruaders, send our regards.
As proud as we are of our father and the other service men who served along with him to give us the freedom we now have and take for granted, our hearts and prayers are with you.
May God Bless you all.
Stf. Sgt. Louis O. Perdomo and family (Miami, Florida and Jackson, Tennessee)
My dad and all of my uncles served in WWII. I am grateful for Jack's and my uncles' incredible bravery.
May 2, 2010. Thank You Dear Liberator for all what you have done for my country. Your name will be forever in history. Rest in Peace Jack. Johnny Bona - Belgian Officer ( Belgium - Bastogne )
I have a helmet in my collection which was signed by John "Jack" Agnew. It is my favorite, because it bears the signature of a real American hero.
Rest in Peace, Jack... we'll all be along a little later.
My wife and I had the honor of meeting Jack and his wife on the 2004 D-Day to the Rhine tour. At 82 he was still full of the vim and vigorish that made him such an outstanding member of the Filthy Thirteen. The picture I took of him with my wife is a treasured momento. We use the word hero too loosely these days. It should be reserved for people like Jack, who laid it on the line for all of us. God's blessings on the whole family.

Sincere condolences to all the family, he came by far to free my country so that we can live free today. He will never be forgotten. Thank you for every Sir. Rest in peace.
Whether alone or with the rest of the devil dogs, men who fought with a ferocity and showed an independent fighting spirit and tenacity exhibited by marines at the Battle of Belleau Wood in 1918 or those "special" units that created havoc behind the lines, we owe you a special gratitude for the freedom of Europe, for safeguarding this country and for keeping the spirit of America alive. God bless Jack and the Agnew family members.
My Sympathies to the Agnew family, John was one of my heroes in Waterman High School, but not as a Military hero, but as a basketball hero, but I did know he was a military hero also. My family lived just across the alley east and one house north of the Agnews. I was a bit younger than Johnny, but about all that happened in little old Waterman (pop500) was basketball and baseball, but I knew all the older boys. My sincere condolences to you all. Jack Mitchell, South Dakota and Arizona.
We appreciate his service to our country.
HOO -RAH Jack,A true American HERO
I wish I had the words to describe my feelings of respect, and my sense of debt to this man, and MANY more like him. Including my Uncle Johnny Carrell.
A generation of heroes is about gone.
I hope God loves them as much as I do!!!!
Our eternal thanks to Jack Agnew and his family for their enduring much for the country we love.
To the family of Jack Agnew. May God give you peace and comfort thru his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow. As the days and weeks pass and as you return to lifes routine may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. (Psalm 34:18)
He indeed belonged to a unique generation. May God Bless you and your family during this difficult time.
May the God who supplies comfort sustain you in your time of need through prayer. Romsn 15:5. My condolences to each of you.

Love, Gail & Brian
May God be with all of the Agnew family.
Men like him encouraged me to join the military and serve 22 years.
The tributes to this hero are wonderful, if you are reading the Obituary,one should read all of these. It is great to find out that this soldier's mission in WW11 was the basis for The Dirty Dozen. I will always think of this in the future in regards to the war and when watching the Dirty Dozen, a favorite movie and book. It would have been amazing to hear his war stories.
Thank you John and to all of the men and women who served and sacrificed in the armed services and to their families. They are all heros.
All my prayers and condolences to Jack's family. I had the great honor to meet and know Jack over the years..always looking forward to seeing him at Ft. Indiantown Gap or at the Reading WWII shows. Seeing Jack and Jake and 2 of his other "Filthy 13" buddies last year was a day I would never forget.
Jack was always a great guy to talk with, and I will miss hearing his stories again. He was a great man and a great war hero.
That term is used very loosely sometimes, but in Jack Agnew's case, it holds true to the highest degree.
I salute you Jack, and wish you the best in Heaven with all your friends who gave us all so much to be proud of.
Thank you Jack.
God Bless you and thank you, Hero. Rest in peace.
Although I never had the honor of meeting you I feel I know you from the stories of our common and dear friend Jake McNiece. On my wall hangs a picture of the night you and your comrades were about to load onto your C-47 and embark on the "Great Crusade" (signed by you and Jake). You were indeed a part of the greatest generation and you will be long remembered. Thank you!
Thank you, friends.
Another Eagle has landed, but this one was my father. Thank you for honoring his life.
Buck Compton, I took a picture of you with Jake McNiece in Louisville. Get in touch or have someone do it. You two looked overjoyed to see each other.
It is with a great sadness that we hear that jack Passed away . We was lucky to met him few years ago in Normandy .
Know that we will never forget all what you did for us and for our freedom .
Our sincere condolences and sympathy to the family .God bless you all .
Franck Maurouard , Normandy , France

Dad always said to me "WWII was a war of principalities and beings and that even the German Soldiers were some mother's son and they were good soldiers" He respected all people even the ones he had to fight.
I pray for Peace on Earth and that we can learn that we were all born, chosen, precious and Holy and we only have problems when we don't act it...
This I pray we learn from Him.
His daughter, Lynne Agnew
Thank you and God bless. Rest in Peace American hero.
Jack you were a hero. Godspeed.
God bless you Jack and all those who loved you.
He Always said "WWII was a war of Principalities and Beings and that even the German soldiers were somebody's son - and they were good soldiers" I pray for "Peace on Earth" It is a great honor to know Dad loved even his enemies - what a lesson to learn.

My father, too, was at Bastogne. Who knows? Perhaps, your paths crossed...
What IS known is that you ALL were proud members of our nation's "greatest generation." We are forever in your debt.
Now, sir, may you rest high on that mountain; safely cradled in the loving arms of the Lord.
Godspeed, Jack Agnew...
God bless Mr. Agnew and all those other heroes who gave us the blessings of a free country. Let us pray that our current generation will be strong enough and wise enough to preserve what they gave us.
Thank you John "Jack" Agnew for our freedom and the freedom of millions of others. I honor you and will remember you. I want to get time to know you in heaven when my time comes to join you.
To his family and loved ones, I grieve with you even though I did not have the blessing you have had of knowing Jack. We are proud of all of our men who fought, both those who came home and those who did not. My prayers are with you as you miss him and I will ask for God to give you many happy times ahead remembering this wonderful man.
God bless you and all who may read this.
Jack was a hero for us,and he will not forgotten. Good bye, Farewel, Old Chap!!!
We don't have to cry for those who were, we must smile for what they were.

St. Michael, the Archangel and leader of God's heavenly forces, will no doubt meet Jack Agnew at the Gate, and say: "Welcome home old warrior. I've been waiting for you...now drop and give me twenty. I'm getting you and a great multitude of American Heroes in shape for the coming war against Satan." March on Jack !!!....and Thank you for my freedom.
Sorry for your family's loss. My dad served at the Normandy Invasion Big Red I Divison, and did not live to a very old age. He saw so much and gave so much as well. Some Gave All! I am so proud of all veterans who fought in all wars so we could stay free. God Bless All of You!
Thank you Sir for serving our Country, and thank you for sharing the truth. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family, you are blessed to have had such a wonderful and obviously unselfish person in your lives. God Bless you.
We owe an eternal debt to such brave and resourceful warriors as you and your fellow comrads in arms. Thanks and blessings.
Thank you, Sir, for my freedom. May God grant you eternal peace.
My deepest condolences to the Agnew family.
I had the good fortune to travel with Jack for two weeks during late May 2003 for a Band of Brothers Tour. At the Omaha Beach Cemetery, I saw how the war still affected him as paid his respects to fellow 101st paratroopers. Initially, he requested to be left alone and went, flowers in hand, to a far off grave site. Then, he came back in better spirits and beckoned to those of us nearby to follow him. He told us he wanted to show us a great guy.
We approach the grave of Major Charles Grant. At the grave, Jack stood back at full attention. He then saluted Major Grant almost 59 years after D-Day. Jack was like this the entire trip; completely devoted to the memory of his comrades and their service. He was deeply respectful of the meaning of his service and the sacrifices that had been made. and we learned from what he had lived.
I most admire Jack for his acceptance of what he was forced to endure in life and that he remained a loving man despite enduring hell on earth. After being gone for a week, he wanted to get back home to his family, but he had yet one more week of enduring us. Jack Agnew is a great man.
another "star" member of the greatest generation has gone on, my salute to mr. agnew, thoughts and prayers to the family
We are deeply saddened over this great lost. Please accept our condolences and sympathy. May God give you the strength to carry on and may you find comfort from His Word, the Bible.
We extend our condolences and we offer our deepest sympathy to the family. Thanks to Mr. Agnew for his service to our country. The family remain in our thoughts and prayers.
May God bless your family during this time of sorrow. Just wanted to thank your family for "Jack" service to his country. May he rest in peace. We can never thank service men enough for what they have done and for what they do every day.
From one veteran to another, you answered the call and did your duty. For this we say thank you.
The Greatest Generation Who Saved The World. Thank You Mate.

I salute this brave soldier for his dedication and courage that helped make this a better place to live in. God Bless ALL, of our soldiers that have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of freedom.
Thank you for your service to our country. Yours truly was the greatest generation. God bless and keep your family.
Many young people in this country don't realize the losses of such
patriots as Mr. Agnew . May he be finally reunited with his brothers in arms.
Truly an American hero who like others of his unit and those of the generation should be celebrated. While his passing is sad, I hope the best for the family and ask that you pass on a salute from all of us who served well after his time. Best wishes for all of his unit and family who remain.
Wars were not part of God's original plan. So he will cause wars to cease and bring peace to mankind forever. He is making wars cease to the extremity of the earth, says Psalms 46:9. Psalms 37:11 says The meek ones will possess the earth and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.
Truly a man from the greatest generation ... Hero all the way....

What a great peice of history for your family to pass down for generations, present and future. Stay proud and stand tall. I'll pray for Mr. Agnew and trust that he is with God. Remember to allow yourself time to grieve, and allow the time to celebrate his life. My condolences to the family.
Wow! I am truly blessed to have read Mr. Agnew's story. I can now say at least I really knew the real hero that inspired the movie the "Dirty Dozen" and the "Band of Brothers". May he rest in peace. And may God continue to keep you and your family in His loving arms and care.
He looks like a young Robert Ryan. I am proud of the service he rendered for his country.

TO A GREAT AMERICAN - THANK YOU, JOHN AGNEW, FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR BELOVED COUNTRY! My dear dad, an Army Veteran, was stationed overseas for almost 3 years during WWII. THIS GREATEST GENERATION HAS GIVEN US SO MUCH TO BE PROUD OF. THANK YOU, THANK YOU - MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND GIVE YOU ETERNAL REST.
My Daddy was a Philly Boy who grew up to serve under Patton and we grew up as Paratroopers born to fight and die for our country. Dad was decorated by Patton in the Battle Of El Guiitar, and I know Jack was a hero and a maker of our wonderful victory in WW2. God Bless Jack and his family, and I know he is "Standing In The Door" In Heaven at the right hand of God.

In honor of your father, John "Jack" Agnew, and in His service to His county, I send my sympathy to you and your family. I pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal ~~ Love leaves a memory no one can steal. May your memories be cherished all your days! I trust this poem will bring you comfort and peace.
To Those I Love
Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go I have so many things to see and do You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess How much you gave to me in happiness I thank you for the love you each have shown But now it's time I travelon alone. So grieve a while for me if grieve you must Then let your grief be comforted by trust It's only for a while that we must part So bless the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for life goes on So if you need me, call me and I will come Though you can't see me or touch me I'll be near All of my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone I'll greet you with a smile and say "Welcome Home"
There are not many men like you left in the world today. Thank you for all that you did.

Thank you for your service in such a brave unit in WWII.In Gods grace I am sure you are enjoying a reunion with your fellow service men,who arrived before you in Heaven.
Not how did he die, but how did he live? Not what did he gain, but what did he give? These are the units to measure the worth of a man as a man, Regardless of birth... Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed? But had he befriended those really in need? Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer, To bring back a smile, to banish a tear? Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say, But how many were sorry when he passed away...God Bless You! From one "Screamin' Eagle", to another, "AIRBORNE"!!!
He won the war, alone with Louis O. Perdomo of Merrils Raiders. Rest in Peace ol' Warrior you spent your time well!
What a great person that was in WW II. I had 4 Uncles in WW II also. God Bless His Family. Terrel Jamett Clark, Rich Hill, Missouri & Villach Austria

My Uncle Thomas E Jardel and Jack Agnew were childhood friends...Tom joined the navy and was killed in action in WW2 on 2/28/41...I always remember Jack's mother(we called her Aunt Molly) when we were children speaking fondly and beaming with pride about "our Jack"...I never knew the extent of his service!! only the words of his proud Irish mother..how comforting to think they are together again!! Rest in Peace,Jack...we salute you for your sacrifice to keep us free~~
THANK-YOU SIR, GOD BLESS YOU.
David Johnson, of Stuart, Florida said everything I couldn't put into words. So I've copied and pasted part of it. "Prayers to the family and friends of Mr. Agnew. We all owe you, and your great Generation a debt that can never be paid. I hope America never forgets the price of freedom, and the price paid by your Generation. We are free because of you, and people like you. God bless our Warriors past, and present
Thank you Jack. Because of men like you...and those who are in the service of our Country today...we are still a free nation.
I love you and miss you grandpop!!
Thank God for men like Jack who proved that the freedom we enjoy everyday as Americans isn't free but comes at the price of service, sacrifice and dedication. Well done, Jack! May God open the gates of heaven to you and the rest of the Filthy Thiteen.
I want to Thank John for all that he had done for us in fighting for our freedom.
Thank you Jack from a Viet Vet to a real hero. My father was also in the Battle of the Bulge. I will pray for your family to have the strength you gave us.
Hold on to all the happy and loving memories of Jack. May God continue to comfort and strengthen you through your Pain and sorrow. Psalms 146:5,6
Just a quick Thank You to Uncle Jack for his membership in "The Greatest Generation" and for inspiring one of my all-time favorite movies.
What has always made this country great is the inspiration of genuine heroes. We just lost one.
God bless this man who served his country with distinction. My dad was in the Army too and I wonder if Mr. Agnew knew a Herbert O. Connor. My dad died in 1984 and my mom,Mary S.,in 1999.
Jack Agnew represents the last of a dieing breed of great Americans. May God bless his death, and give comfort to his family. Col Brown(ret).

He worked until he was 84!
