Remembering An American HeroPosted on 2/25/14 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear LCPL Michael John Cutri, 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

It seems like YesterdayPosted on 6/6/09 - by Marcia WaltonIt seems like only yesterday, seeing Jim and Mike in their uniforms. The pride of the community. The best of the best. Marines. So many years have passed. But I still remember the light that came into a room when Mike flashed one of his famous smiles. While visiting Syracuse recently I happened to see Mike's gravestone. And I could remember him like it was yesterday. Such an appropriate inscription on the stone. Thank you, Michael.MORE
He was my heartPosted on 6/6/09 - by Jean Labrecque Klem firstname.lastname@example.orgI've NEVER forgotten Mike. I've been married for 37 years and have 3 sons. My family has heard about your wonderful brother and we've been to The Wall to honor him. There isn't a May 28th that goes by that I don't think of Mike. He was the BEST. He'll always be in my heart.MORE

Michael Cutri - "Coach" enjoys swimming and fishing. Future - "As good as I can make it."
To the best of my recollection, I had no classes with Mike, but definitely remember him in the class of 1967.
Remembering Michael CutriPosted on 6/10/04 - by Lily HooksIn my nephew's rest time, he wrote poetry. This one is on his gravestone:MORE
It is a word that should be to diificult to pronounce,
It is a place that should be hidden so it can never be found,
It is a thing so ugly that it should be kept in the dark,
It is an idea that should have never become real,
It is my keeper.
Michael was only in Vietnam for three months. I remember him.
