  • Our last conversation . . .

    Posted on 7/9/17 - by Bernard Downey
    Although we were both back in the rear area , I didn't know you well but we spoke on occasions . Our last conversation pertaining to the fragging incident that took place at Camp Eagle , in which I was critically wounded as a result of an attempt on the life of the Sargeant Major and you telling me that you know who the responsible party was , has actually solved the crime that was perpetuated by this individual who is so obviously guilty , after almost 50 years !
    Thanks for your help and his narcissist need to display the things that were stolen from my possessions , that were his charge at the time of me being wounded ...Rest Peacefully , fellow soldier , brother warrior.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PVT Wayne Stephen 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
