  • You Saved My Life Sam

    Posted on 7/22/14 - by Jerry Prater
    Sam was my squad leader in the 1st Cav. While we were on a patrol, one guy in our platoon stepped on a mine and lost part of his leg. Our squad began to search the area adjacent to the mine. Sam and two others started climbing up a steep 5 foot incline, and I noticed a more level spot a few feet away. As I was walking to the level spot, Sam stopped me and sent me back to the incline, and he walked to the level area instead of me. A few seconds late, he stepped on a land mine and was killed. I would have been killed instead of Sam if he had not stopped and redirected me.

    Uncle Sammy I was but a young boy when you died. Yet even today many years later at the age 59 I still have fond memories of your life. You'll never be forgotton.

    Love Always,

    Dear SGT Samuel E Witcher, 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

    Sgt. Witcher was the first KIA that I experienced. He decided to check the flank out while we were going down a road. One man on the road tripped a booby trap that blew his foot off. While Sgt. Witcher was checking the flank with another man, he set off a booby trap that took off his leg and killed him. For context, see http:vnwarstories.comvn.Road2Disaster.html
