  • Remembering an American Hero

    Posted on 5/30/13 - by Curt Carter

    Dear SGT Edward Robert Hansen, 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

  • Never Forgotten

    Dear Soldier,
    We’ve never met. I’m a student from Illinois working on the Gridley High School Posting Project for my history class. I was born years after your death. The only reason I know about you is from my history books and stories I’ve been told about the war. But I admire you, I have the utmost respect for you, and I am forever grateful to you. Your death was one among thousands, but was still quite significant. You are truly a hero and will always be remembered. May God bless you and your family.

    I regret that you are not here today, but your memory lives on. When I think of you, I will always remember what you did at Vietnam. You fought for the rights and freedoms of people that you had never met, and sacrificed the most important thing that you ever could... your life. As a proud American, I salute you, dear soldier. Rest in Peace.

    I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, IL. I write this remembrance to you as
    part of the Gridley High School Posting Project, a Project that ensures that those brave
    men and women whom either perished or went MIA during the Vietnam War are not
