Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/17/14 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear PFC Howard Clinton Robinson, sirMORE
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

Angel DayPosted on 10/27/09 - by 60's GirlI don’t know where to begin to express my gratitude to someone so courageous, but I will try.MORE
I want to thank you for taking up the call to serve your country so honorably and I want to thank you for the ultimate sacrifice that any man can make – your precious life. Please know that these mere words come from my heart and I mean ever one of them.
No matter how others may feel you did not die in vain, nor was the war senseless. You and your brothers-in-arms whose names are engraved on The Wall have and will be an influence for good in this country. You and the others have influenced the youth of our country – this is shown by the remembrances these young people have left for all of you on this site. You all have touch a cord in them and they will remember your sacrifice all of their lives; so, your deaths are not in vain.
I am proud of you and the others and can hardly wait for the day when I will be able to meet you and give my thanks to you all.
You courageous men have touched me to my very soul with your selfless actions and I will spend the rest of my day honoring you all in whatever way that I can. Thank you for the bottom of my heart!!
On this your Angel Day I leave this quote for you it’s from the movie We Were Soldiers:
To fallen soldiers, let us sing,
Where no rockets fly or bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord
No more bleeding, no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night,
Just divine embrace, eternal light
In the Mansions of the Lord
Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
Through the ages safely keep
The Mansions of the Lord

Robert E. Fitch High School Class of 1964
he sleeps remembered beneath this sacred ground,
a white stone etched with his passing, engraved
with the beginning and the end, family name,
he rest with those who passed before,
in rows of eternal sleeping souls, in peace,
still loved, missed by those who weep,
in Spring among the blossoms, he is
honored, respected by “soldiers past”,
a reverent salute from a somber face,
placed a flag on his day,
and through the years at sleep,
he is “Not Forgotten…”, Americas son.
