  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Honorio Ramirez Jr, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Although we never really knew each other we both were together the day you were taken. You had only recently arrived to the recon platoon in June of 66 and even though you were an experienced Army Sgt. the Nam was new to you.
    We had the unenviable task to recon a heavily enemy populated are in the mountains near Tuy Hoa, on the South China Sea.. Luck plays such an important part in our lives and as luck would have it, the shrapnel from the short round fired from a helicopter gunship hit you and took your life. The same round hit my closest friend and a staff Sgt. The concussion from the blast threw me like a rag doll, but all it did to me was confuse me for a short time.
    I was spared, two men were wounded and we settled in for a long day and night of intense fighting.
    I think of you and the other men who were lost that day, almost every day of my life. We barely knew each other but our souls have been bonded for eternity.
    May God bless you my brother and may you rest in peace.
