    Dear CPL George Edward Henry, 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

    August 26, 1999
    30th Anniversary

    To Kathleen
    Midshipman, USN

    The average age of those who served in Vietnam was 19. There will always be a place reserved in my memory for those 38 of my brothers who gave their lives in the line of duty on August 26th, 1969, my own nineteenth birthday. And it is not without regret that I hold special remembrance of my five younger brothers, Don Brown, USA, Jimmie Morris, USMC, Joseph Pinto, USMC, James Shipman, USMC, and Glenn Truex, USMC, who I will always believe went in my place.

    There is a place
    Not far from here
    Where spirits walk
    And heroes live
    And honor still resides.

    It is a wall
    With names inscribed
    Of those who served
    When they were asked...
    The brothers of my youth.

    I go there still
    To walk and think
    About my life,
    And what I've done since
    And things that might have been.

    There is a debt
    I can't repay
    Too many lives were spent.
    And one man's life cannot suffice
    To make their deaths worthwhile.

    But there is hope
    In the memory
    Of those we leave behind
    Who know the price that freedom brings
    Who can carry on in kind.

    I send you now
    To touch a name
    So the vision can be passed
    Remember there is honor still
    It is for you to see it lasts.

    They are not dead
    And have a wish
    As all old soldiers do
    The reflection you see before you now
    Is their wish to live in you.
