    I remember Charles as being a kind, unassuming guy. I was several years younger and remember him riding my school bus. He always stood in the stairwell and was pleasant to all.

    Dear PFC Charles Leroy Eller, Sir

    As a fellow North Carolinian, 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.

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

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

    Charles, many trips to West Jefferson on Saturday night, many laughs, many times of friendship in both school and out. An honor to have known you and to know that you defended me and my country.
