    Dad, on June 4 the President hosted a ceremony for America’s Gold Star Families.

    While you & Dicky looked on us from above — mom, Bill, Terri, Tony & Jim represented the family and stood when your name was called to be remembered while the President, Vice President and leaders of the US military looked on.

    Dear Major William Edward Cordero, sir

    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

    Curt Carter
