  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/1/14 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SGT Barry Wade Graf, 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

    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
  • Mary Graf receives her gold star

    Barry, your mother finally received her Gold Star pin in the Memorial Day services held at the local Korea/Vietnam memorial. Her picture and a bit about the day she learned of your death was published in the paper. These are the few words she spoke ...

    "I can't say that I'm proud to have given a son, but I am proud that he was given for a good cause."
  • How Great Thou Art

    Posted on 5/5/03 - by Kayla Blue
    Oh Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the worlds thy hand hath made. I see the stars. I hear the rolling thunder, and hear the bird and feel the gentle breeze. Then sings my soul, my savior God to thee, how great thou art. How great thou art. Then sings my soul, my savior God to thee, how great thou art, how great thou art.
    God bless.
