    Dear Cpl Daniel Gardner,
    Thank you for your service as an Indirect Fire Infantryman. Happy Veterans' Day. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I can still hear those cowboy boots hitting the ground as you chased me down for some mischief or the other, man how I feared that sound! I was just a wise-ass little kid, always underfoot, but you always took the time to try and show me how to be better than what I was. You left us so early, so young. Now it's 46 years to the day; you are still young and I'm old and gray.
    Oh how much better my life could have been if you had just had the time to show me a little more. Now my son, Daniel Eli Gardner, (I named him after you) is the same age as you were when you were taken from us. You would really love the kid, he looks so much like you. I will try and honor you by showing him how to be better than what I am.
    I love and miss you bro,

    Dear CPL Daniel Eli Gardner, 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
