    Dear Sp4 Billy Duke,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Your 70th birthday was yesterday. Happy Birthday. Independence Day is approaching, and we remember your sacrifice. 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.
  • Rest In Peace, Fellow Red Devil.

    Dear SP4 Billy Wayne Duke, 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

    Dear Uncle Billy, it is almost another veterans day. We have found some of your buddies and they are some of the greatest guys ever! They miss you everyday, just like us. I never knew in this life but I know you are with me everyday. I went to The Wall finally and felt you on the other side. It is my honor to teach my son about your sacrifice. Bobby is happy and dad watches out for her, she loves you to this day. I love you!
