    Dear 1LT Michael Stewart Elledge, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Michael Stewart Elledge
    was on the same floor with
    me at OCS. Class 26-67A
    had some of the best people
    in it. Michael's sacrifice
    is hard to realize. It was
    not in vain. Those days
    were so long ago.

    I remember Mike Elledge well, although I did not know of his sacrifice for many years after. I was visiting the OCS "museum" when I first learned of his death in the early 80s. We were officer candidates in the same OCS class at Ft. Sill. His bunk was on the second floor of our barracks, and I was on the first floor, so we never became best of friends, but we spent 6 grueling months in the same unit. He was a good guy and we ran the hill many times together on weekends to work off demerits. We were commissioned on July 11, 1967, and I never saw him again. His picture is among the rest of our class which I proudly display in my home. I arrived in country more than a month after his death. To his family and friends, my sympathy, very belated, but sincere. Wednesday, June 19, 2002
