  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC John Henry Erbes, 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

    Thank you so much for your brave service to this great country of ours so that we may enjoy all the freedoms available to us to this day! My thoughts and prayers are with your family as well as to those of your brothers and sisters KIA along with you. My husband was standing right beside his buddy when a bomb struck his buddy. Do me a favor and say 'hi' to him please? Thank you again Pvt. Erbes and WELCOME HOME!!

    Thank you John for your ultimate sacrifice. You will always be a young man to those who knew and loved you just as my brother Lonnie Floyd. He was KIA 1-14-67 in Vietnam and served with the 173RD ABN. I can't imagine how brave and dedicated to our country all of you young boys had to be to give your every breath for our country. I know you and Lonnie and all of the 58,000 men and women who answered the call of duty proudly have a special place in Heaven and are looking down on us today. Peace to your family because I know too well that their hearts will always be broken. Rest in Peace John.

    In years past, many people have shown their love for their country in many ways. Many people have flown the American flag. Many people have sung patriotic songs. But you showed your love for our country in a way that was much more profound than these. You were willing to lay down your life for our country. For that sacrifice for your country, I thank you, and I want you to know that you are not forgotten.
