REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/22/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SWF2 Loren Francis Studer, 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

    Loren was a good man and a good Seabee. He was building a fuel storage tank when he was accidentally electrocuted.


    He was flown by helicopter to a hospital, but died in route.


    Do not understand why the military reported it as a heart attack.

    Loren, here it is Memorial Day 2003 and I just found out you were killed, and it's been 35 years!

    I feel so sad...We roomed together in Oxnard, CA; you taught me to ride your new Harley,
    why you let me ride it I'll never know but I thank you for doing so. We served together in NMCB 8.
    We were proud to be Seabees!

    You were killed 1 month after I left Vietnam, I didn't know. I always wanted to ride up to Iowa
    and visit you, my friend. My good friend.
