Sixty-eight-year-old John Lechowicz of Yorkville, Illinois, is a Vietnam Veteran who served four years as a member of the U.S. Air Force. He is in his final days of life.

Lechowicz wrote to Dream Foundation for help fulfilling his final dream.  As selfless as his service was to our nation, so too was his dream. While in Vietnam, Lechowicz saw troops’ bodies removed from cargo planes and later, coffins loaded onto planes to return to the U.S

“I feel that even though I do not know all their names, I would somehow connect with them by just touching the [Vietnam Veterans Memorial] wall,” Lechowicz wrote.
