  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/12/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Alan Carroll Lockard, 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
  • Loss of a good friend

    Posted on 9/24/13 - by Paul Rosenblatt
    I had the good fortune to grow up as a good friend of Alan Lockard's in the Pimlico neighborhood of Baltimore, Md. in the 1960's. I entered the Army in November of 1966 and left the states for deployment to II Corps (1st Field Forces) in Vietnam in early June of 1967. ( I extended my tour twice in order to qualify for the "early out" program which meant that I was still in country when Lock arrived there in November of 1968. I wrote Lock an "in country" letter on 12-9-68 and the envelope was postmarked 12-10-68. I know the postmark date because I received the unopened letter back on New Years Eve in 1968 in a larger envelope with the following letter enclosed:
    Dear Sgt. Rosenblatt,
    The enclosed mail, addressed to PFC. Alan Lockard, US 51674041, bears your return address.
    Official records of the Dept. of the Army, as of 16 Dec. 1968, indicate that he was reported to have deceased on 13 Dec. 1968.
    I regret that it was not possible to have delivered this mail to him.
    Thomas C. Adams
    LTC., AGC

    I still regret that I wasn't able to attend Lock's funeral but do visit his gravesite on holidays such as Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Christmas, etc. and still miss him.
