  • A True American Hero

    Posted on 5/18/18 - by Jim Mills
    I was a close friend of Mark's. We met in college in 1966. We were both drafted in August 1969 and entered Vietnam in January 1970. I was assigned to the 545th MP Company, 1st Air Calvary Division. At the family request I escorted Mark home to his final resting place. In honor of Mark I named my first son after him. He was a kind and gentle person and a great friend. I miss him every day, He has left us but he will never be forgotten.

    I was with Mark Brantley on the day he was KIA. Mark was a great American, a great soldier. May God keep and bless this young man, forever, until I see you again.

    Dear Sgt. Brantley,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cav. Mike was 1st Cav, say hi to him. Independence Day is approaching, and it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear SGT Mark Curtis Brantley, 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
  • To Put A Face With A Name

    Dear Mark, to honor your memory and the sacrifice you made for your country I want to make sure your photo will be displayed on your birthday each and every year when the Education Center is completed, so it is with great pride and humility that I post this remembrance and picture of you. You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war 45 years ago. God Bless You, Mark, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.
