    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Ken.
  • Long Overdue

    It's been many years since Ken and I were at York High School together. Many things have changed and stayed the same at the same time. I'm grown now with my own family and have a son who fought in Iraq. He came back with many mental scares. I wish this was all that Ken had to deal with. My heart truly goes out to all veterans who put their life on the line even for those people who don't deserve it. I write this now for all who read it to know that Ken and the other Vets on the 'Wall' will never be forgotten. God bless you all.
  • Thank You My Cousin Kenny

    Although we never met, because you gave all for our nation, I have known you through my fathers stories and the time I have spent at The Wall. Filled with Pride, our family and this grateful nation honors you for the sacrifice you gave to us, in the name of protecting Freedom around the world.

    An iceberg, with all its grandeur and beauty, is only about 10% visible. We forget about the 90% that is hidden underwater. The same seems to have become of our freedom. Our way of life is so easy. We have instant communications with our friends, families, and loved ones. We have unlimited supplies and choices of food. We have more TV channels than we have hours in a week. And regrettably, we have worshiped our lifestyle and forgotten about the immense foundation that, like an iceberg, is out of sight. And that foundation – freedom – has been eroding because we’ve become unwilling to pay the price to protect our freedom. As many have said, “Freedom is not free.” It is purchased at great price.

    So - Thank you my cousin. I would have loved to known you, and some day - we shall meet. As I know our Lord has great plans for us....
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CPL Kenneth Erwin Steinhebel, 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
