  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Mickey Lee Hawkins, 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

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may terein comfort you.

  • I lost a very nice friend

    Mickey and I go back to grade school days, he was my friend. I knew his father and mother, and his paternal grandma also. He always had a smile on his face. He was in a band, after his passing a dance was held, his band played, and I remember his mother touching his guitar,that has stayed with me, to this very day, I visit his grave when I can. May you play with the angels forever mi amigo.
  • A great kid to hang with

    Mickey was always going to be a marine and serve his county. He was fun to play with as a kid growing up. The whole comunity loved to hear him sing "I'm a Traveling Man" in the "Stars of Tomarrow" talent show in Longmont. I still think of Mickey often.

    I first meet Mickey When we were 3 years old. We grew up together in the the small town of Lyons, CO. Mickey was agreat gitar player. AS a matter liked muisc, he could play any kind of instrument you could imagine.
    When Mickey Joined the marines, he said he wanted to protect his country, even if it meant going to Vietnam, to fight for the right of all americans. To make sure we all live in a free country.
