    Dear CPL Anthony Da Ponte, 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

    Anthony had a brother, George, and a sister, Mary. He attended Freehold Regional High School and graduated from Southern Freehold Regional High School in 1966. Before entering the service, he was employed at the Brockway Glass Company in Freehold, NJ. Anthony loved hunting, trapshooting, skiing, tobogganing, woodworking, riding motorcycles, and playing handball with his best friend John Barkalow off the side of his friend's family barn. Anthony loved to ice skate with his brother and John on the farms irrigation pond. Anthony loved to hunt the winter fields for small game with his father George Sr. and his brother, and loved fishing off rented rowboats with them in Brielle, NJ. Anthony loved his big sister Mary and as she watched over him especially when growing up on Star Street in Brooklyn, NY. And most of all Anthony's mom (Faye) always warmed his heart loving him dearly, making warm meals, squeezing and cooking the wild grapes he picked for homemade grape juice, and always being there for him simply knitting and waiting in her rocking chair by the kitchen corner window.
