    PFC Terry L. Albright was a machine gunner serving with K Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines, 1st Marine Division. At 11:10 AM on October 7, 1969, PFC Albright was reported lost after becoming caught in a water current on Route 4 in Quang Nam Province, RVN, and carried away after the area was hampered by severe flood conditions. His remains were found three days later by 1st Squad, 2nd Platoon, K Company. His cause of death was confirmed as drowning and a medevac was called to remove his body from the field.

    Dear PFC Terry Lee Albright, 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

    I may have been but a little girl when we lost you, but I have truly never forgotten. The ways in which things would have been so different had you been able to come back home to us are unimaginable. As is the pain left by your passing. It's been well over 40 years and I still think of and miss you. Until we meet again, you are missed and loved.
