  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/17/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Randy Lee Taylor, 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 am trying to obtain information on my brother,

    Private First Class

    Randy Lee Taylor,

    killed in Vietnam, 17 August 1967,

    in Quang Tin.

    He was a member of

    Headquarters & Headquarters Company

    2nd Battalion

    1st Regiment

    196th Light Infantry Brigade

    I have contacted his sergeant, Joe Santiago,

    who has provided a sketchy list of the other

    squad members. I am trying to find the

    names of the men who served as medics for

    the squad. It is my hope to be able to speak

    with them as well as anyone else.


    Please contact me. Thank you very much.

  • In honor of a true soldier and a good friend

    Posted on 11/5/01 - by Joe Santiago
    My name is Joe Santiago and I was Taylor's squad leader. He was quite a human being back in the day. No matter how bad things got, he would always find some good in it. He possessed a smile which was extremely contagious. He had lots of laughter in his heart that he didn't mind sharing. I feel very fortunate to have known such a person/soldier. May God bless you Randy and keep you in his heart as we will always keep you in ours. Sarge
