    I never had the opportunity to know Larry. I arrived to the 3rd platoon about a week after the ambush. I was assigned as RTO to Lt. Shoemaker. Larry was well liked by many in the platoon.

    Dear PFC Larry Allen Gatliff, 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

    Larry, you are a cousin I never knew, but I knew about you and the life you had. You can now rest in peace.

    I'm not surprised you took point that day because that is our family way.
