Farewell John Sefko - 36th Engineer
#1

And yet another 36th Engineer, leaves our ranks... Received the following from Captain John Fallon.

 

Dear John,
My dad, John Sefko, received the upcoming reunion notice for the 36th Engineer Combat Regiment. I wanted to send you a note to let you know that his honorable life ended on December 1, 2014. He was a true member of the 'greatest generation'. He lived his life for the benefit of others, always making self sacrifices, wanting nothing, needing nothing -- just wanting the best for those he loved. While he told my siblings and me many memorable war stories, they were always ones with humor and happy endings. He chose not to tell us anything more. I'd like to extend my gratitude to you and the other members of the 36th Engineers who fought so nobly for the generations to come. I wish you each the very best.
Respectfully,
Marian Thallner

 

 

 

Our numbers are few and each loss makes us respect the rest . May he rest in peace. Now there are 19 of us still present or accounted for.
