    Dear SGT Larry Mark Horner, 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

    From "The Stand Alone Battalion" by Jerald Berry and Joe Alexander.

    "On July 4th the Currahees commenced Operation HANCOCK GOLD in their customary surroundings of Binh Thuan Province. The first significant enemy contact during the operation occurred on July 9, when a slick from Troop C, 2nd Squadron (Airmobile), 17th Cavalry received enemy ground fire while inserting a ranger team and crashed on the landing zone. As the helicopter crew and the ranger team scrambled to secure the aircraft, they came under attack from an unknown-sized enemy force with samll arms and mortar fire, resulting in the death of four Currahees. Sgt. Larry Mark Horner, 19 from Walnutport, Pennsylvania; Sgt. James Luttgens, 21, of Keyport, New Jersey; Spec 4 Gregory Alexis Dodge, 20, from Stockton, California; and SFC Julian Luna, 36, of Forreston, Texas were killed in the incident."

    Larry was survived by his parents Mr. and Mrs. Charles Horner, two brothers: Robert and Thomas and his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Wehr, and his paternal grandfather, the Rev. Charles W. Horner.

    Larry is buried in Fairview Cemetery, Slatington, Pennsylvania,
    Lot # 637

    God rest your souls, Currahees!
