    Growing up in Woburn,Massachusetts Joe was a very close friend in our teens.When he joined the Marines he became a man quickly.When he went to Vietnam most people in 1965 couldn't find it on a map.He died at the age of 18 shortly before his nineteenth birthday.Its been almost 50 years and I often think how if things were different he would have been if allowed to grow up.It seems so useless now and a complete waste of human life

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear American Hero,

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
