he Call to Duty
A call to duty is sent out
and the strong and the brave reply.
They do it for love of country,
So there's never a need to ask why.

They leave behind all that they love,
Their families, their homes and their lives,
Because to preserve these precious things
Is the goal for which each soldier strives.

So God bless our troops,
The courageous Jhon O'Brien a.k.a j.j
Who fight to make sure
The bells of freedom peal again. PS.. Will miss you my friend you have showed

I am very saddened to hear about JJ passing. He was great friend and teammate when we played BB at Suffolk University. We quickly became friends and bonded being North Shore guys. I have great memories of JJ and I going to games together, picking one another up, hanging out laughing, etc. I can hear his voice and his wise cracks now. Thanks for the good memories JJ and your service to our country. I will see you again brother!
