    Dear PFC Michael Yates Keeter, 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

    Mike, I remember you from boot camp at Parris Island. Platoon 297, we graduated around August '67. I remember you well. I was the squad leader of the 4th squad. You were very likable. I didn't realize until recently that you were from Gastonia. I think of you often. Thank you for your service. I'm sorry that you're not with us now. I will never forget you.
