Soldier's Dream is dedicated to LT JOHN ROBERT PAINTER JR., M.I.A., presumed dead on 18 June, 1971. I didn't know this brave man at the time I saw his name on the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington, DC, but I did a tracing of his name, framed and hung it on my wall at home. After spending many years searching for Johnny's family I was quite excited to find them in November, 2002. Contact was made with Johnny's sister and brother-in-law who told me the bittersweet story of Johnny's life and death. They gave me these pictures and kindly granted permission for me to add Johnny to this page
The War in Iraq claimed its first Panola Country casualty, Miss. National Guard CPL Audrey Daron Lunsford. Lunsford, 29, was killed May 23 near Baghdad, when a bomb exploded near his Humvee. Daron, a former U.S. Army Soldier, re-inlisted in the Miss. National Guard in January. He was patriotic and loved his country, and he was proud to serve his country and his family. Daron would have turned 30 May 24th. I personally saw Daron off when the National Gaurd division were given a send off by the city. Daron was so full of life, stood so proud and tall, and held his little daughter and gave his wife and daughter a kiss and a huge smile. He kept the other members of the unit laughing and was a tremendous joy to see him offer comfort to the other members of his divison and their families. Fly High Daron! We love you and will never, ever forget you!
