CW2 John "JC" Corathers, 72, US Army, Retired, Vietnam Veteran, OF Belton, TX

The family of Chief Warrant Officer John "JC" Corathers has requested the presence of the Patriot Guard Riders at the Committal Service of their Loved One.

JC's service included Combat Infantryman, Green Beret special operations, Golden Knight Army Parachute Team member, OH58 Scout pilot, then Civilian Airfield Coordinator before coming to Fort Hood where for the past two decades, JC led the III Corps Exercise Planning office at Fort Hood. Here he supported several generations of Army senior leaders - including the current one - in the planning and conduct of realistic training exercises to support readiness, and frequently, for deployment to combat. His entire obituary may be found here:
