  • Remembering Eddie Dean Gant

    Eddie also had a number of half-siblings, one of whom is my father. My dad was born in 1938 in Memphis as well, and had joined the Air Force (as did my dad's full brother, Jerry, who is the oldest of my grandmother Margaret's children. My father is second-born.) My father has fairly advanced Alzheimer's but we were aware of "Uncle Eddie" at a young age and learned about honor and respect for our personal connection to the community of people who lost loved ones to the ultimate sacrifice.
    My life has brought me, my husband (USMC Reservist), and my son to Columbus, MS and we plan to visit Grenada soon to pay our respects.

    Eddie Dean was my first cousin and he loved to hunt and did not mind taking me hunting. Although Dad gets credit for teaching me to hunt, Eddie Dean never seemed to mind to take his young cousin along. Thanks Eddie Dean!!

    You are still missed!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear LCPL Eddie Dean Gant, 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
