    Dear SSGT Elton Odis Harris, 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

  • My Dear Nephew Who Was More Like a Little Brother

    Posted on 3/26/00 - by Ollie Rue Estes James
    Elton, my nephew, I wonder if you knew how special you were to our family and how very much you were loved by one and all. Words cannot express the extent of our loss when we lost you. You were so much more than a nephew to me. You were more like another little brother because you and "Buddy" were so close. We never saw one of you without the other when you were growing up in Eldorado. I will love you and miss you forever.
