  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SSGT Charles G Roberts, 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

  • To The Best

    Posted on 7/22/07 - by Major Joe R Noles jnoles@ec.rr.com
    As the FO for Delta Company, I had more contact with SSG Roberts than anyone other than Cpt O conner . He is my hero, a friend that I think about more than I would like to. We were together on operations for over six months and was selected to spend two weeks on the top of a hill to observe movement of the enemy below. With just his platoon and I, his actions showed what a wonderful leader he was. Around the 12th day he had the bino's and saw the group of VC/NVA coming in front of us. He didn't want to stop firing the lethal artillery into the valley below. The next week I started to feel the pain of malaria and was not with him when he died. Could have been the same group of VC/NVA that we delivered fire on that planned and executed that terrible ambush. God I wish I could have been with him. The hours in the BN aid station with malaria, and seeing my wonderful guys come back, dead and wounded has haunted me for all my years since. SSgt Roberts, you were and are the best...Many years have pasted and I still Think of you.

    Hope you are resting with the knowledge that your many friends are thinking of you and your sacrifice.

    To your family: He was the best platoon Sgt I had the honor to serve with in my twenty years in the military.
