The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to John E. Haygood our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for John. And to John it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during WW-II and the Korean War while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. John, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, Generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace. Semper Fi!

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to John's family and loved ones.

I used to love to sit around Uncle John and listen to him telling jokes. He was such a great friend. I remember how he loved to talk. Every time I saw him, he asked how I was and he wanted to hear everything. He always took the time to listen and I knew he truly cared. Love to all, Rance

Hugs and love to Aunt Janice and family. I have such fond memories of Uncle John and so thankful that my children were able to meet him. He used to pull the same prank on myself and brothers and my children...... pretending he was pulling his thumb off his hand! Can picture him sitting on the dock at the lake and watching us swim. I learned how to play Rook at a very young age because of his patience and instruction. Not many men would take the time to teach children how to play cards and then be proud when we finally could beat him! He was an amazing man. Love to all - Becky
