    Dear PFC Walter Christian Mayer, 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

    Walter, I remember you as fun, full of life and very smart. I don't have many days that go by that I don't remember you and Kimmey Hobbs. Went to the Vietnam Memorial on the Texas State Capitol grounds on Tuesday May 6, 2014. Was almost overcome with emotion thinking and talking about you two. Thank you for your service to our country. You paid the ultimate price so that your family, friends, classmates and countrymen could live in freedom.

    You will live forever in our hearts and minds. You've made us all proud that you served our country when called. You chose duty, courage and honor when others chose cowardice and selfishness.
