    Dear MSGT Frank Luther Huddleston, 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

    This Memorial Day I would like to take the time to recognize a close family friend and true American hero. Frank Luther Huddleston, my father's best friend, was wounded on May 17th, 1966 in the Phuoc Tuy Province of South Vietnam. Wounded by enemy machine gun fire he asked his brothers in arms to lean him up against a tree so he could defend them as they fell back. Miraculously he survived after being shot twice and injured by a fragmentation grenade. Permanently paralyzed from the waist down during that day, he came to Christ soon afterward and lived a long and healthy life, impacting many, including myself, before eventually succumbing to the wounds that he received that day on August 15th, 2002. His name was added to the Vietnam Memorial on May 12, 2003 and can be found on panel 16E, 109. He is currently the oldest veteran to be added to the Vietnam Memorial.

    I miss you and love you Uncle Frank. Had I understood as much as I do know now about how much you gave defending our freedom I would have loved to listen more to your stories. I miss your hugs, rides on your wheelchair, and the smile that you always gave me when we came to visit. I cannot wait until one day when we will speak again. Thank you for your sacrifice. I promise you that it will never be forgotten.
