    Dear SSGT Walter Dart,
    Thank you for your service. I do not know your MOS, only that you were from across the Hudson River from here. Passover just began and today is Easter. Happy Easter. It is so important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear SSGT Walter Joseph Dart Jr, 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

    I knew him when we were stationed at Webb AFB. I was shocked to learn of his passing a few weeks after I returned from Ton Son Nhut AB.
    We knew Walter as "Flea" because he was so short.
