    Dear PFC Carlos De La Hoz,
    Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. It has been too long, and it's about time 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.

    I lived at 50 Main St in Yonkers in the early '60's. I was about 5 or 6 when Carlos taught me how to make a paper airplane....actually a delta-winged paper airplane that I still make and fly today, more than 50 years later. I remember him about as clear as anything else I can remember from that long ago.......he was a great young man, gone way too soon

    Dear PFC Carlos A M Dela Hoz, 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
