    Dear CPL Richard Willia Schwendler, 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 just wanted to thank you for the service you have done for our country, My great grand father and grand were both marines like you and I am quite certain that you like them were the best at what you did, you were loyal, confident, and proud to serve. Again thank you for your service.
    Semper Fi, Marine.
