    I was also a medic that served with Gary in Vietnam. Gary was a very special man. always a smile on his face and such a positive person. He was coming to the aid of wounded fellow soldiers when he died. A great loss to the world.So many years and yet he is still remembered and thought about almost every day.

    "A wounded soldier is never alone. There is always a comrade that is there for them." A quote from a cemetery in Germany.

    Dear SP4 Gary Murray, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Even though I was only 3 when Uncle Gary died, I have heard so many stories from my family about what a great young man he was. I still have a toy he bought for me when I was little. He is missed. My dad has the flag from his funeral and we still fly it on beautiful sunny days.

    Gary graduated in 1964 from Happy Valley High School in Elizabethton, TN. He was voted Wittiest Male in his Senior Class. I am putting a Face with the Name to honor Gary's memory and his ultimate scarifice.
