    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Michael.

    Dear 1LT Michael Kaye Wonderlich, 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

    Mike and I were high school sweethearts who later married. He was a great guy, wonderful husband and great soldier who enjoyed life, served his country proudly and planned to make the military his career. Mike loved bringing me yellow roses when we were stationed at Ft. Benning. I have a close relationship with his family and attend the Wolfhounds Viet Nam reunions with my sister, Janice, who loved him like a brother. Although our life together was cut short, I will always love him and miss him everyday of my life. It took courage to be in Viet Nam. The sacrifices were real, and everyone who served deserves respect and honor.
