Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/26/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear GSGT Micheal Allen Mikitis, sirMORE
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

You Were My D.I.Posted on 7/18/09 - by Capt J.A. Maultsby, USNR Ret'd, Patrol Sqdn 46, Cam Ranh Bay, RVN 1969-70 firstname.lastname@example.orgTo the Family of GSGT Mikitis:MORE
In March, 1965, then SGT Mikitis, was my Drill Instructor in Navy pilot cadet class, Pensacola, FL. He had a personality all his own & struck fear in each of us when he walked into the room. His standards were High. In retrospect, he was a classic Marine & taught us well in our formative weeks of military indoctrination.
I am truly sorry GSGT Mikitis made the ultimate sacrifice for our country in Quang Tri. My best friend in H.S. also died in QT Province just two months earlier & may have even served with him.
I am proud to have served with and be taught by such men as GSGT Mikitis. May God rest his soul.
