    Dear SGT Russell Lowell Williams, 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

    I am writing you to commend you for the great service that you gave to your country. Through your sacrifice, the United States lost one of its brave fighters. You are not a replaceable person. You are unique and you had your own story, your own loves, and your own family. My greatest gratitude goes to you, whom was willing to give up your uniqueness for the betterment of all mankind. Thank you.
