    Dear SGT Glenn Edward Miles, 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

    Glenn E. Miles



    Grandpa to me. You are not just a number, you are a true hero. It is hard to imagin what you would be like if you made it home and was there when I was little. Even harder to imagin what you would be like now that I am 22. I could only think about how my life would have changed and just how much it would if you were able to be here. But in a time of need, you were there with so many others. I wish I had a photo of you, but all I have are stories. not many, but nevertheless, stories. I know that when you died, you died for our family and the American people.



    I have had an oppertunity to talk with one of your classmates from high school and he tells me that you were quiet but nice. He also tells me that you had one mean game of basketball. He also said that you had one really nice car. yes sir, I could have learned alot if you were he with me and the family, but you did the right thing. I did learn something though, when you are needed, be there. Dont stall. You were there for me, now I am here to serve our family just as you would. Thank you for your sacrifice.



    in loving memory,



    Your grandson,



    Justin Carlisle
