Remembering An American HeroPosted on 12/18/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear LCPL Jerry Dean Hatcher, 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

If you were in trouble he would be there and would put himself in danger to save yours or help in anyway he could. He honestly believed in trying his best to make a difference for the people of Vietnam. In his letters he told of making friends with many Vietnamese.
