    Dear PFC George Larry Cruse, 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

    You were caught in the net cast by LBJ as one of 100,000 who sould not have been called. You were devoted to your friends & gave your life for them not knowing they were already dead. There is no higher devotion than that. I was WIA before you died

    I am writing this remembrance as a part of the Gridley High School Posting Project for Vietnam War Veterans. I am currently a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. We are trying to get at least one remembrance for every man/woman who lost their lives serving their country. I felt this assignment would be one that if taken to heart would serve a lot of good, not only to family members but also to admirers and the general people.

    George was killed trying to save the life of his friend Johhny Miller that day on 2 May 68. Georges action was a very brave act in that intense fire. I think of that day often and am very proud to have served with the men in Charlie Company of the third platoon of the 3/21 infantry of the 196th LIB. I have a very soft spot in my heart for the other 10 men in our company that died that day. Our motto was "Duty" they lived up to their duty and their service was not in vain or a waste as some have said about that war. Service to American cannot be a waste. I have prayed often for yor family Goerge. With deep admiration and affection. "Red"
