Remembering An American HeroPosted on 2/28/14 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear 1LT Charles Hubert Stanley, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Family InfluencePosted on 2/18/08 - by email@example.comI was only 10 when I attended your funeral. I think it made a big influence in my life. I feel the pain of all soldiers lost in war to this day. I went on to support all those who were left behind in the war as a POW/MIA by saving my babysitting money to buy a POW/MIA bracelet. I eventially lost it when I was 15 but I never forgot you or the name I wore, WO William Pierson III, he is still listed as a MIA today in 2008. I will always remember my distant cousin Hubert Stanley, and my POW?MIA braclet William Pierson III.MORE
Thank youPosted on 3/19/03 - by John SaxIt’s unfortunate that so many of the men and women who have served this country seem to go without notice. I am involved in a school project to make sure this doesn’t happen. My name is John Sax and I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. I want to personally thank you for you sacrifice and let you, your family, and friends know you are not forgotten.MORE
