Comments: Dr. John, Your second testimonial was from a former student and a family friend, Savannah Saenz. I taught her when she was in eighth grade at St. Anthony's School in Robstown. It's a small world. I injured my right ankle in Airborne School in 1979 and made my last jump from a Huey back at West Point. I'm not sure if you are going to read this comment but if you do before tomorrow morning, my wound is not healing too well and my wife thinks I may need an oral antibiotic. Please give me a call at 563-2602 if you can. Thanks for the inspiration. I salute you too. Mike Rizzio

Comments: Sir, There is nothing can say as we both beat the same ground in Iraq. I remember than I want to and I understand the sweats and nightmares. It moved me to read your book and I have always looked up to you. I have a deeper respect for you now knowing more about you. I will always be here if you need to talk and I will keep my word to you. 9R

Comments: Hi Doc. You recently performed surgery on my mother Debbie, and what an awesome job you did. Since the first time we walked into your office, we both felt a connection. The kind of connection that you feel so bonded by. You are such an incredible person, so personable in your practice and really made us feel comfortable in your office. A couple of weeks later, my boyfried and I saw you on base and were able to purchase a copy of your book for my mother. She read the book and then I. We talked and talked every day on the things in the book, the person you were, and the person you have become. You have been through so much. Like the old saying, "What doesn't kill us, will only make us stronger." Well, like you, I am a living testimony of living through hard times, and surviving. You give me such inspiration to keep going and achieve my goals and dreams. Life has so many ups and downs, but through faith, and determination, we can do anything! Look forward to more books.

Comments: Hi John, It was good to find your site and read about you, your life, and some of your dreams that have come true and are still a work in progress. I am glad I was your friend and hope I still am, I would love to talk some time if you'd like, send me an email. I still have my Quiver and I showed my wife the picture of you and me at the beginning of the Underclassmen section....I smiled in my heart when I read what you wrote.... Thanks John for being Strong. Bruce

Comments: Congrats on the recent promotion and all of your work to date. I'm sure it is only a matter of time before your manuscript will find its way into the hands of the publisher who is 'meant' to put your work out for the world to enjoy. Having only recently relocated to the coast, it's good to know I'm a bit closer to the source of such writing. I plan to stay tuned. All the best to you... Donna

Comments: I'm so deeply moved by your stories John; especially your birthday when God revealed himself to you and the "salute" from your father..thank you for sharing them. There is nothing that touches the heart like hearing the first time we truly know we are loved; not only by our worldly fathers but knowing that He hears us is the strongest sense of security we'll ever know. I know you'll have the success with your writing that you want and deserve. Many blessings....

Comments: An inspiring, gripping and powerful story of a unique life. It’s hard to comprehend what you went through to be here today to share your story. You have touched and tapped into the raw emotions of the reader. They way you have written your story puts the reader right in the action with you; feeling the same emotions and sting of pain. You can feel the heart ache and the tears well up in your eyes. I had tears in my eyes for the biggest part of the time while I was reading. The reader wants to reach out and give you a hug and let you know that everything is going to be alright. Once you start reading, you can’t stop. I can’t wait until the book is published! The excerpts are fabulous; you definitely have a best a seller! It is truly a wonderful book and you have done a fabulous job. I encourage everyone to read it and take the journey because it will be an experience you will never forget! May all your dreams come true for today’s dreams are tomorrow’s successes!
