    Dear SP4 Benjamin Edwin Lennard 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    This world lost a treasure when we lost you; and heaven gained another angel. Your daughter has grown up to be an awesome Christian, daughter, wife, and mother. You would really be proud of her.

    Ben, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well and thank you.

    Dear Benjamin Edwin Jr Lennard,
    I am a sophomore at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. I am posting this remembrance as part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. I have realized that I owe it to you to honor you and thank you for your service. My words and small amount of time can not do justice for what you did for this country. You left all you had to fight for your country and what you believed in. You ended up giving the ultimate sacrifice: your life. Thank you very much soldier and God be with your family and loved ones.
    Humbly and respectfully,
    Marie Shank
