    Dear Sp4 Alton Ellis,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. 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.

    You can't forget the guy who taught you to drive a motorcycle. His Ducati. Or how his scalp would get sunburned because the hair on top was a crew cut but the sides were long and b ack. A wonderful guy to hang with when our world made some sense and we were too young to ever believe that the age of 20 would be all he'd get to. REST IN PEACE MY OLD FRIEND. THE REST OF US AREN'T VERY FAR FROM SEEING YOU AGAIN. YOU AND RON EBERLE MADE US AWARE THAT WE WERE NOT IMMORTAL. SO UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN KNOW YOU'VE NEVER BEEN FOEGOTTEN. LOVED IN LIFE AND LOVED IN THE NEXT.

    Dear SP4 Alton Starling Ellis, 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
