  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/23/14 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SGT Roosevelt Hardy Jr, 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

I was 5 feet behind you and as always you were our leader, I am proud to have been in your squad and you were a great person. You saved some lives that day.It was an Honor to know you and I want to let your family know that you died protecting your men and died with Honor. To all the Hardy family, Sgt Hardy was a Brave soldier and he will always be in my Heart...

    Roosvelt, I think of you so often and wonder what life for Diane would have been like if you had lived. I wonder how many nieces and nephews I would have had now and how happy your family would be.

    You will always be my brother in my heart and though I was so young when God took you away I still feel your presence in my heart. I know that Diane does also.

    We love you and miss you.
  • Honoring You

    I chose your name from the CT map painted in our school which lists the soldiers from our state that lost their lives in Vietnam. As part of the Capt Nathan Hale Middle School posting project, I would like to honor the sacrifice you made for our country. Thank you so much, it makes me proud to be part of this country knowing that hundreds of thousands of men and women died in its honor. You were a very good person. Thank you so much, you will never be forgotten.
  • Selfishness

    Hello, my name is Jamie Dennison. I am from Gridley High School, and I just wanted to take time out of my busy and selfish schedule to write and thank you for everything you have done for this country. You probably did not realize that you gave up your time, family, friends, and future to rid yourself of selfishness. By doing so you gave me freedom and you gave me courage. Thank you for not being selfish and for doing what Christ wanted you to do for him. You will always be remembered in my life and the lives of others who come across your name and this remembrance.

    Jesus Loves You,
    Jamie Dennison
