    Carl, I remember the days we spent in school together. You were a fun loving, friendly classmate and a pleasure to know. As I think more and more of those days, I treasure them and the friends I had. I have visited the Wall, seen your name, and wish you and your brothers were treated far better for their sacrifices back then. Know your will always be remembered old friend.

    Dear PFC Carl Richard Wenzel, 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
