Master Sargent. John P Swetman peacefully passed away at age 67 in his home in North Carolina.
John was born in Kansas City, one of the oldest to a large family. John joined the Army in 1971, and had a full, decorated and adventurous career, including Desert Shield and Desert Storm. John retired in 1995 after serving almost 24 years.
John loved to fish, and enjoyed NASCAR, as well as working on his 1930 Ford. Probably his greatest passion was volunteering for Dream Power animal rescue and other "no kill" non-profit organizations.
