John Derek Flores, of Barrigada, Guam, would never hesitate to assist anyone in need. He was a most respectful, the most generous, appreciative person.  He loved Spam and rice; when everyone else was in the mess hall, he’d be in the motor pool cooking Spam and rice. For him there was no better meal. 

John had joined the Army to eventually relocate his young family and purchase a home in the United States. 

Private First Class John D. Flores, 21, was killed May 3, 2007, when his unit came in contact with enemy forces using small arms fire in Baghdad, Iraq. He was assigned to Schweinfurt, Germany, with the Army Active duty 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry.

    My loving brother,

    7 years have passed and not once have i ever stopped thinking about you. From time to time i would cry myself to sleep wondering what if…Maybe if you were here you would still be teaching me how to play a guitar. Remember those days and nights when i would always get you frustrated over the “G” key because i just couldnt remember how it goes? I miss those days and i miss you so much. Your the only brother i have and now that you have gone to a better place, i pray that the Lord God will take good care of you there until it is my time to come and reunite with you again.
    You will forever stay in my heart. I love you so much.

    Rest in Peace
