    Mike and I grew up together and when we were toddlers we were inseparable. His parents and mine were close so we literally grew up together for many of our younger years. My brother created a shadow box photo with Michael's medals and patches which I submitted separately and has all of the articles and letters of condolence sent by various politicians to our family when Michael was killed in Viet Nam. Thank you for your service Michael and for your ultimate sacrifice in keeping America safe. We think of you and talk about you more than you could ever imagine. Until we meet again in Heaven. Much Love, Cousin Karen

    We never met, but you are my great-uncle's son. You lived in California and I lived in Texas. I was very young when you went to Vietnam, but I remember hearing my grandparents and parents share the sad news of your death with each other. I thank you for the sacrifice you made for all of us. I've asked your California relatives to try to find a picture we can post. Rest in peace, my cousin.

    Dear PVT Michael George Cryar, 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
