  • I Thought of You Again

    I thought of you again, a fellow Cavalry Trooper, as we assembled at Fort Knox to begin our way to Vietnam. Preparing for the War before us. Our arrival in Vietnam in February 1968 then the night April when you were taken. The day will come when all of us who served with B Troop, 7th Squadron, 1st Air Cavalry will be greeted by you at Fiddler's Green.

    Dear SP4 John Russell Hendrix, 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
