    Dear PFC Samuel Johnson Jr, 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

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service to our country and for the sacrifice of your precious life.

    It is a privilege to be able to honor you for standing up for what was right and for the courage that you demonstrated.

    I know that there are many who say that the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war, but for this American that is not true. What you did for the freedom of others was not in vain but has always been and will always be an example of good and honor today and for generations to come.

    You will never be forgotten by me and I will honor your name and your sacrifice all my days.

    In honor of your Angel Day I leave this poem for you:

    “Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts.
    And we are never, ever the same.” ~ Unknown

    Dear Samuel,
    I am a student from Gridley High School located in Gridley, IL. We are posting remembrances for a class project and to honor those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.
    I would like to thank you for the sacrifice that you made. You defended your nation’s beliefs and were willing to die for these beliefs. You sacrificed your life because you believed in the inalienable rights for all of human kind. Thank you for your protection and extension of liberties for all men, women, and children. Thank you for your fine service.
