  • To the Uncle I never met

    Posted on 5/29/17
    Dear Uncle Eddie,

    I never had the chance to meet you because of your sacrifice, however our life has left a lasting impact on mine. I watched the years following your death as my mom (your sister) mourned you. She tells stories of how full of life you were. She loved you dearly and will never be the same without you. We are all proud of you. I grew up looking at your purple heart an flag which are still on display in her house. May we never forget that freedom is not free and although to many you are a name on a wall, you are much more to us.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Edward Elias Heyer, 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
