    Basic Training, AIT, APC Driver and Mechanics Course, 8th Division Jump School in Wiesbaden Germany, and 1/509th Abn. Mech. Infantry. We did all that together and then you decided not to go to OCS and went to Vietnam before me. You were the greatest friend and we had many great times together. I think about you often and wish we could have another beer together and talk about old times. We will meet again Fred. Mike

    Dear SGT Fred D Smith, 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
