  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Donald Peter Roemer, 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 senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, IL. As part of the Gridley High School Posting Project, a project that ensures that those brave soldiers that perished during the Vietnam War are not forgotten, I write this to you: your courage is inspiring, your memory is unfading, and your loyalty is admirable. I am proud of you for defending those in Vietnam; your actions will forever leave an imprint in my life. Thank you, dear soldier. Rest in Peace.

    I am posting this to show my appreciation for Donald. I am grateful for what he did for our country. You are a true American Hero, Donald. I am proud to claim the title of an American when I remember your sacrifice. Our country has been built on the brave actions of strong men and women like Donald. Every baby that cries understands the concept of freedom, the concept that those people died defending. God Bless You, Donald. You have my respect and gratitude. You will be remembered forever.
