    I was much younger than Steve who lived a few houses away. I always looked up to him, he was a role model in the neighborhood. I remember him leaving to go overseas and thinking how great it will be to hear his stories. When I heard about his death I was greatly saddened because America lost someone who was destined to do wonderful things. I am a much better person today because of Steve. I thank him and his family for touching my life and him giving up his.

  • Thank You

    Dear PFC Steven Robert Frese, 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

    Steven had recently finished college and was planning on becoming a high school teacher and baseball coach. He was drafted before he could begin his career. His father died when he was 12 years old but his older brother George helped to guide him during his formative teenage years. One can only dream of what his contribution to our way of life would have been but for war.
  • I remember you & Thank You!!!

    I remember the night you came to the ball field to say goodbye just befor you left for SEA. You paid the ultimate price for me and this country and I will never forget it.

    Thank you Steve...God Speed
