REMEMBRANCES

  • The horrible day during the Tet offensive

    Posted on 11/24/13
    I remember this day as if it were yesterday. We were flown by slicks into the area. We crossed the bridge and were sent into the wood line. All hell broke loose and we were in mortal combat with a large force of VC and probably NVA. The battle lasted quite some time and we took many casualties. Gary fought with great courage and valor. He was a great guy and I was very upset when I heard he was gone. Blessings to his family and all who held him dear.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Gary Joseph Landon, 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

    I didn't know Gary very well because I was 5 years younger than him, but my father and his dad were good friends.
    Whenever I visit D.C. I visit his name.

    Gary...
    I wish we could go back..
    To the days when life was carefree...
    Those days of high school
    When girls and friends were everything...
    Rest easy friend..
    Until we meet again...
