  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 9/19/16 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Stephen Edward Crist, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    As a fellow Buckeye, I say "THANK YOU"

    As a Veteran, I say "JOB WELL DONE, SOLDIER"

    As an American, "YOUR DEATH WAS NOT IN VAIN"

    And as a Believer, "YOUR SPIRIT IS ALIVE--AND STRONG"

    Although we never met personally, I want to thank you Stephen Edward Crist, for your courageous and valiant service, faithful contribution, and most holy sacrifice, given to this great country of ours!

    For my brother:



    I'll lend you for a little while

    A child of mine, God said.

    For you to love the while he lives.

    It may be six or seven years

    Or forty-two or three;

    But will you, till I call him back,

    Take care of him for me?

    He’ll bring his charms to gladden you,

    And (should his stay be brief)

    You’ll have his lovely memories,

    As a solace for your grief.

    I cannot promise he will stay

    Since ALL from earth return,

    But there are lessons taught below

    I want this child to learn.

    I’ve searched the whole world over

    In my search for teachers true;

    And from the things that crowd lifes land

    I have chosen YOU.

    You will give him all your love

    Nor think the labor vain

    Nor hate me when I come to take

    This lent child back again.

    I fancied that I heard them say,


    For all the joys thy child will bring

    The risk of grief we’ll run.

    We’ll love him while we may,

    And the happiness we’ve known

    Forever gratefull stay.

    But should thine angel call for him

    Much sooner than we’ve planned

    We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes

    And Try to Understand.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
