    Dear SGT Donald Lee Perry, 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
  • Remembering Don

    Don and I grew up together in Taft Ca; I knew him well. Don was a wonderful and gracious individual who would befriend anyone. Over the years; especially during veterans or memorial day, I think of all the "kids" like Don who gave the ultimate for us to stay free. As long as I am here; they "shall never be forgotten"!!
    I will do my best to keep "their respected honor" living.
