The following is an excerpt for The Record, dated Monday, January 29, 1973:
Barbara Pall looked forward to the letters she received regularly from her husband, Army Pfc. John J. Pall, in Vietnam. In one letter he wrote: "We've been hit very hard, but so far we've been lucky." Usually this letters were a comfort to the Bergenfield wife and mother-to-be. That letter was not. It had been preceded by a telegram informing her that Pfc. Pall, 23, had died from metal fragment wounds received in combat in April 1968. "He didn't grumble or groan. He wanted to make the best of it and do his job well," said Pall's mother-in-law, Mrs. Carolyn Weeks. "It may sounds corny, but he was very patriotic."
