    You sat behind me in Mr Varnava's Spanish I Class, you, a big bold Senior, and me and wise ass Junior waiting to take over the world . . . you always knew the exact moment when to flick my ear during those deathly silent moments waiting for one of us to be called on to give the answer . . in Spanish. Never dreamed that I too would serve a Tour . . . but this Sgt came home and never forgot those that didn't . . . Salute My Brother.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear WO Russell Moldenhauer, 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

    Veteran's Day, 2011. Remembering Russ on this, his special day. I remember Russ from Hueneme High School and the good times we had. You are in good company with my brother James and Bill Burke who also gave the supreme sacrifice in Viet Nam. We will always remember you. Hoohah!
