    Dear SP4 Jesse Allen Murphy, 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

    He was 5 years older than I was, but I remember him so well. His family lived a few miles from us. We went to the same church and schools. I know his brother and neighbors won't forget him.

    I'll never forget the day this great American fell in battle. He was walking point and tripped an enemy ambush before they were ready for us. He received a mortal wound during the inital contact. Because of his actions others in the patrol were saved.
