    Dear SP4 George Foxe, 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 for your service and sacrifice. You gave your life for your Country, and we greatly appreciate you for that. We watched “We Were Soldiers” in our Vietnam class. This movie demonstrated all the challenges that you and other soldiers faced in the war. It touched our hearts to see what you guys had to go through in order to guarantee that the United Sates stayed free of communism and safe. We will never forget what you did for us.

    Thank you from Cheshire High School, for the ultimate sacrifice that you made for our country.

It touched our hearts to see what you and your fellow soldiers had to go through. We want to thank you and all of the men and women involved. Both your contributions and sacrifices will live on in our hearts and the world.

    We just finished watching the movie “We Were Soldiers” and saw your name listed at the end. We wanted to thank you for your hard work, and bravery. You made the ultimate sacrifice for your country and for that we thank you. We are part of a class that is learning about the Vietnam War, and are learning about the events that played a part in the war. Thank you so very much for your service to our country, The United States of America. We can never thank you enough for what you have given; we can only remember the tragic events of the war and those who served in it.

    FOREVER REMEMBERED

    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
    Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."

    Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
    KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

    We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you , one of the gentle heroes and patriots lost to the War in Vietnam:

    Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

    From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

    Dear George,

    Words cannot express the hardships you endured during Vietnam. So many times we often take freedom for granite, forgetting the people that fought for it. I am a senior at Gridley High School, in Gridley, Illinois. As a class project, I want to remember those who have paid this price. Thank you George, for being an example for future generations.

    Thank You!
