  • Childhood memories of a hero

    Posted on 7/26/15 - by Bill morrison friend and childhood neighbor
    I remember growing up down the street from Mike. We lived on Shreve drive in bridgeport, Michigan. Prior to mike joining the Marine Corp the war in Viet Nam seemed to be a nightly news report in a world that never touched our small quaint little neighborhood. There were certainly many WW II vets and I am sure some Korean but Mike was the first to join the Marine Corp and then deploy to Viet Nam. Even though Mike was a few years older then me I clearly remember him. What I remember the most is when he joined the service and came home from boot camp in his uniform. It wasn't long after that mike was deployed to Viet Nam. It was not long after that that the unbelievable happened. Mike was killed serving his country in a war that I would someday also participate in. I was stunned! I can remember the day of notification like it was yesterday. My mom cried for a very long time. I remember the funeral servcice down the road at the community church. It was stuck by how sad it was but at the same time how proud the community seemed to be of our lost hero. Years later I was deployed to Viet Nam and I can not tell you how many times I thought of Lance Corporal Mike McManus. Being stationed at Dang Airfield a short distance from Freedom Hill I would think of Mike and his sacrifice to our nation. I am beginning to ramble now so I will stop. I just want to tell anyone who reads this that Mike is a true American hero! God Bless his sole! Never should his sacrifices be forgotten even if for just a moment! Thank you Mike for all you did for our country!

    Dear LCPL Michael George McManus, 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
