    Dear SGT Owen Raymond Montgomery, 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

    My name is Sarah Ruff and I live in Gridley Illinois. I am part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. I am proud to fly the American flag out side my house because of what you’ve done. You fought for our right to fly our American flag. Your actions made it possible for our country to stay free and to protect it from harm. You helped the United States stand up for what we all believe in. You committed your life to helping others and for that I am truly thankful. I am thankful for you leaving your loved ones and fighting for people you didn’t even know. I know that you were a courageous and honorable person and I will always think of you as a hero. Thank you for allowing me to fly my American flag with pride.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
