    Never forget the nights we spent together on guard duty in a bunker at some LZ whose name I have long forgotten.

    Always wondered what happened after we went our separate ways.

    Sounds like you were a true hero at the end.

    Dear SGT Clarence Edward Watson, 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

    Dear Sir:
    I am a Gridley High School student and I am doing a project for my history class. I would like to thank you for what you have done for America. You made the ultimate sacrifice, giving your life for others. For this sacrifice, you deserve to be honored forever. You will not be forgotten.
    Thank you and God Bless, Melissa Kaeb
