    Dear PFC Gerald Allen Benson, 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

    Gerald,
    In one of my classes in Gridley High School in
    Gridley, Illinois, we are trying to remember all
    those who gave their lives in sacrifice to our
    country. It is hard for me to comprehend what
    it was like for you as you were selflessly fighting
    for our country, but your act of bravery will
    never be forgotten. Thank you for this
    courageous sacrifice that you gave! God Bless
    you and your loved ones!
    Sincerely,
    Kaleigh Schlipf
