Remembering An American HeroPosted on 7/23/13 - by Curt CarterDear LCPL Idus James Conner, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

As many before and many after, you gave the ultimate price for your brothers and sisters in arms. I thank you and all persons of military backgrounds that too gave their life so there comrades could come home safe. Sometimes I miss ya and don't know why? I was just a little one when you passed but I guess the bond between relatives is stronger than we know. Semper Fi Uncle Idus
