    The almost two years we served together are many years in the past but still very fresh in my memory. You were a damn fine Marine and an even better human being. Bravo Zulu Marine! RIP

    Many years ago,as an 18 year old Marine,I witnessed your demise at the hands of a sniper. Still sad to this day.

    Dear CPL Nelson Earl Van Gundy, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    My husband (Earl's brother) was 7 yrs old when Earl was killed. If anyone served with Earl and has photos or stories that they would like to share it would be greatly appreciated. He has very few memories of his brother since he was so young. You can email us at
