    Dear PFC Dennis L Hershner, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Dennis graduated with me from Rim of the World High School in 1964. He was kind of shy and very very nice. There is no doubt he would have been a reliable buddy and a very brave soldier. We will be getting together for a reunion in October 2002 and we will as always remember the friends we lost so many years ago. Dennis is one of our heros.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
