    Dear Sp4 William Diggs,
    Thank you for your service as a Field Artillery Basic with the 1st Cavalry. I did the research on you on your 71st birthday, so happy belated birthday. Memorial Day is coming up, and we remember all you who gave their all. 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.

    Dear Nannie, we connected a few years ago through the message board. You told me about Bill and your little girl. I would LOVE to connect again!

    Dear SP4 William Franklin Diggs, 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
