  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC William Jefferson Lindsey, 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

    Jeff graduated in 1960 with my older brother, Woody. I was just in the 9th grade at the time. I remember Jeff as the starting catcher for several years on the high school baseball team. He caught his brother, Andy, a year younger, and an outstanding pitcher. Jeff, as I recall, hit several towering home runs over the right field fence. He was definitely a power hitter and had a very good arm, throwing out many who tested him while trying to steal second or third. Jeff was killed on the day that I reported to basic training at Ft. Benning, Nov 17, 1965. He was part of the first U.S. battalion sized operation in Viet Nam. The events of this first major battle have forever been chronicled in the book, 'We Were Soldiers, Once, and Young,' and the movie about it. Jeff's name is listed inside the cover of the book, along with all the other US casualties of that battle. I remember him well as being an easy going country boy with a big smile, a lot like many of the others from the 60's who made the ultimate sacrifice in Nam. BR
