REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/18/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Gary Harold Garner, 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

    I visited your grave today. The first time since your funeral. I still have the pictures of the roses you sent before you shipped out. I got your letter after we got the news. I cannot forget. We had only just begun. I will see you again one day. God Bless you for your sacrifice.

    Gary, I never got a chance to tell you how proud I was of you. You became a real man in the Marines. It devistated Sue and I when we got the news of your loss. We miss you and will see you soon in heaven.

    I never met you but I know alot about you. You and my mom were dating when you got called to Vietnam and I think suppose to get married when you got home. She loved you very much and still thinks about you alot. She has told me the story of when you last came to see her. You were getting ready to ship out and when you left you told her not to look back. She still crys when she tells the story. I truly believe you are the only person she has ever truly loved. She often thinks about how things might have been if you would have lived. Please watch over her. You meant the world to her.
    God bless you!

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
