  • My Dad a Real Hero

    Posted on 11/28/16 - by Richard Galbraith
    Although I was 7 years old, I still remember you and how you were a great Father, and my HERO, I am trying to reach out to your friends in the Army. But it is hard to find anyone! I am asking Your brother Uncle Ken, the Last surviving Brother, my memories of you will never fade, I only wish I had MORE memories of you. I think of you all the time, how you went so young. But you loved to fly, I do remember how you took David and me up in that Helo that was all glass and I saw the smile you had! I Love you and will never forget you, Your Youngest son, Richard, "Dickie" Galbraith

    He loved us so.
    Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
    In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
    He loved us so.
    Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
    With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
    He was our defender, and he kept us free!
    He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
    He loved us so, and we should know.
    For we loved him so.
    Mr. Galbraith (Warrant officers are addressed as "mister", from WO1 to CWO4 ((later CWO5)), although chief warrant officers can be addressed as "chief"), you had been there abnd done that in Vietnam! You fought for the right, without question or pause! North Braddock is very proud of you! Your name and fame are the BIRTHRIGHT of EVERY American citizen! In your youth and strength...your love and had given all that mortality can give! You had gien all to defend liberty everywhere! You were the very essence of DUTY!...HONOR!...and COUNTRY! You flew your helicopter on MANY missions, and you gave your life doing what you desired to do! I am strongly convinced, and feel strongly, that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I greatly admire as one of my three top favorite songbirds of all time, the otherr two being Julie Andrews, England's musical queen, and Dusty Springfield, another thrush from England who passed on some years ago, would be very proud of your service to America, and the sacrifices made by you to keep our country free! Well done, Sir! Be thou at peace. ARMY STRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear CWO Raymond Clarenc Galbraith, 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
