    Dear SP4 Byron Matthew Richard, 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 am a student from Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois and I am doing this as a project in history. Thank you for fighting for our county to protect our freedom and values. You will never be forgotten for your bravery, and for paying the ultimate sacrifice. Thanks again. This is part of the Gridley High School Posting Project

    Today I saw you're grave and wondered what happened to you. I told you I would find out where and what. We still remember you and I will see you again.
