  • Memories from 1967

    I remember the then CPT Toal as our Professor of Military Science during my last semester at Xavier HS in NYC. I remember him as a "no nonsense, ramrod straight" young officer. It was a shock to hear he had been KIA less than seven months after we saw him for the last time! I have a tracing of his name from the "Wall" in DC. Thank you for your service, Major Toal and may you continue to Rest in Peace!

  • A Great Man

    Thank you for serving for our country, because while you were fighting for yours, you have given me mine. Your actions have impacted my life and my future and I cannot thank you enough for all that your service has made possible. I see that you are a graduate of Valley Forge Military Academy and College, which is just down the street from me. We have both walked the same roads and I am honored to have lived so close to someone so prestigious. Thank you for service and your immense bravery.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear Major Alonzo R Toal, 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
