Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/11/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SP4 Todd Arthur Handy, sirMORE
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

Lifetime impressionPosted on 2/25/04 - by Larry Landaker email@example.comWe never knew each other very well but Todd and his family attended my high school and church in Xenia. I was about 3 years younger and was impressed with the idea of knowing this young soldier--very handsome and very polite. He stood out. When I visited the Vietnam Memorial Wall for the first time I looked for his name and was profoundly saddened but proud to have known him.MORE

Rememberence of a friendPosted on 5/31/99 - by Karl Greulich KG262888@wesnet.comI remember Todd when we were in junior high school in Troy, Ohio. We were both small for our ages but he was a wrestler and one of the nicest people I ever knew. Fiding his name on the wall in D. C. made Viet Nam too real for me. Karl GreulichMORE
