  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Arthur Lee Hawkins 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

    Hey, Hawk Man, I was at the traveling wall yesterday, and had the chance to touch your name once again. Tears filled my eyes. Just wanted to say thank you for trying to teach me the funky chicken, in our tent in '68. You were one funny dude, and a good friend. Semper fi, Frank
