  • Your brother Cornelius wanted people to know this about you

    Posted on 5/22/18
    Albert Potter was the third of eight children. His youngest brother, Cornelius, remembers him as being a great fisherman and taught Cornelius how to fish. As Cornelius got older, Albert wanted Cornelius to be a paratrooper, they used to practice jumping off of the shed using a sheet as a parachute. Cornelius remembers Albert as being a very dedicated soldier. This photo was submitted by Cornelius Potter.

    Dear SGT Albert R Potter, 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

    Al Potter was my neighbor when I was 13 years old, shortly before he was killed. His wife Carrie and him treated me as a daughter and were very special to me.
    I will never forget either of them.
    God Bless his soul forever more.
