    Dear SGT Gerald Frank Mayo, 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

  • Remembering Sgt. Mayo

    I was in the lunch room of Mary Simpson grade school when I learned Sgt. Mayo had been killed in Vietnam. What I knew about Vietnam came from black and white footage over our families evening meal. Over 40 years later I can still recall the moment when the students of Mary Simpson learned that one of our classmates fathers had lost his life in battle. Timmy was the son of Sgt. Mayo. He was a classmate of mine. I have thought about Timmy and his family through the years. I have visited Sgt. Mayo's grave at the Hillside Cemetery on a number of occasions. I would like the Mayo family to know that I will always remember the sacrifice of Sgt. Mayo.
