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.

    I was one of the Hospital Corpsman that worked on you the day you were wounded, February 23, 1969! We tried so hard to save you my brother, but couldn't! May you rest in peace my friend and brother! I will always remember you!

    Dear SGT Daniel Gerard Ely, 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
