  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Daniel Aguilera, 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

    I'm on this earth because of you. It could've been my dad instead of you. Maybe not directly, but he was in your Unit, and must've been close. The sorrow of your loss is something I see in dad's eyes to this day. I wish you'd had the chance to raise your own babies, it doesn't seem fair, it isn't. I just want to say that as dad has always been my hero, so too have you-

    You are and always will be my, (our), hero. From poverty God sent you into a mission much greater than you probably expected. Oh if only the world knew the beauty of your metamorphosis from the witty, cocky teenager, musician, singer and sometimes enigmatic persona, to the beautiful, loving, caring, and giving individual that we were so fortunate to have known. You have made an indelible impression on our hearts and lives. I struggle to put your everlasting memory of a hard life made even more tragic by the knowledge of what could have been a wonderful future cut so short. You will always be my big brother. I will honor you on Memorial Day, and keep the beautiful memory of you always with me, even to my grave. May God keep and comfort you always.

    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
    Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heros you left behind...."

    Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
    KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

    We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heros lost to the War in Vietnam:

    Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

    From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers
