  • Still in our hearts and memories...

    Memorial Day is coming again and, as with every year, I think of Bill. I knew him from the time I was about 2 years old and he was about 7. I thought he was such a BIG kid. He was also a great kid. Always there for us smaller fry. He grew into a fine young man, followed the family business to the Army and Vietnam. That's where we lost him. Why do we always lose the best of our young men? Still miss you, Bill, and think about you. Love and peace, Janie

  • Grateful

    I did not know this man until this website informed me of how great he really was. May he rest in peace. For all the service and gratitude he did for this country and the honor he bestowed upon his family.

    [I'm not too sure how his belongings appeared in Massachusetts but I found his hat with medal at a thrift store. If anyone of the immediate family would like it (although I've been treasuring it before I even know the significance), I'd be more than happy to send it on me.

    Dear Captain William Daniels Meara 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchnace, may therein comfort you.
