    Dear LCPL Philip Francis Sheridan, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I have thought of you often over the years, visiting Panel 50E of the Viet Nam Memorial whenever in D.C. I have read several books about Khe Sanh, wanting to know more about your dedication and ultimate sacrifice. Your actions on that Easter Sunday do not surprise me. How appropriate that God would call you to his side on the same day as he did his own son. You are remembered and missed by this former army aviator. Semper Fi Marine!
