    On Memorial Day I think of you Gary (and many other days). I thank you for the person you were and the ultimate sacrifice you made for God and Country. You were a very special human being. I will never forget you.

    I remember the very first time that I saw Gary. He was very small baby, less than 1 year old. He had a little pair of blue jeans on. I thought he was so cute. We were neighbors. Gary, I am so proud of you. I wish I had known where you moved and could have seen you after you was grown. I accidently learned of a major heoric act that you took. I worked with a lady who was telling about her nephew who had been killed in Vietnam and she named you as his friend. Through our conversation, I knew it was you. I will always love that little boy. Thank you for giving your life so that we could live in a land that is free.

    I was just a boy but he treated me like his best friend. He was my hero even before the war.

    Dear PFC Gary Lynn Johnson, 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
