    Dear SGT Lawrence Howard Mitchell, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

    Lawrence, Although we never met, I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting the freedoms we have today.

    Sgt Mitchell was assigned to Tiger Force, 1st Battalion (Airborne), 327th Infantry, 1st Brigade (Separate), 101st Airborne Division. He was fairly new to this recon unit, having arrived from Germany where he served with the VII Corps LRRP Company. He talked a lot about his family and how much he missed them. His only wish was to make it home back alive and be with them. Sadly he died while sitting next to me in a "Huey" helicopter that was blown up as we left one hot area to be inserted into another. He was a nice guy, a competent leader, and a sad loss to all that knew him. May you rest in peace.
