  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Garry George Green, 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

    Although I really didn't know you Uncle Gary, I sure appreciate your ultimate sacrifice. I am one of your sister's (Peggy) sons - Curtis "Scott" Lacey. I know your mom sure prayed for you, and praise God she prayed for me. In 1986 I received the Lord Jesus Christ as my personnal Savior. I spent 4 yrs in the Navy which gave me 5 full years of schooling which I spent at Tabernacle Baptist Bible College and ultimately received the 7 year Master of Divinity Degree in 2001. If any of my relatives read this and don't know for a fact how you can join Uncle Gary and myself in heaven one day, please contact me at I love you Uncle Gary and look forward to seeing you soon.

    I visited Garry at his house numerous times in Colorado Springs when we were kids in about 1960. I remember his dad was a Air Force Sgt. stationed at Ent Air Force Base, which is now the site of the U.S. Olympic Training Center. His dad owned one of the first big tank swept wing cars. I think it was a 1959 Plymouth. Cool! In fact I think it was a station wagon, so they could fit his two sisters (Nancy), and I forget the other one's name, and mom and dad and anybody else that ever rode in it. I attended church with them numerous times at Bethany Baptist Church way over on the west side of Colorado Springs. Someone in his family lived in Manhattan, Kansas because he was proud of a Kansas State pennant or t-shirt he had in his bedroom. Garry was a prankster and enjoyed having us play "52 card" pickup, where you shuffle the deck and let the cards fly all over the floor. 52 card pickup! Garry was quite a coniver as he was able to wiesel large amounts of money from his mother's purse and proceed to buy the neighbor kids small things from the nearest grocery store or Golden Point french frys. Yum! Yum! A funny thing happened to me one time when I went to his house which was just across the street. I knocked on the door and I swear someone, Garry or a sister said come in, so I did. Apparenty his parents did not hear that so as I was walking in the door and down stairs, I got the dirtiest look from his parents. No one ever said anything to me but I found out from Garry that they thought I just walked right in. What are friends for? We moved away, and the last time I saw him he was working at a Colorado Springs car wash. Then a year or so later we heard that he had been killed in Vietnam. Another piece of our lives had been snuffed out.
