  • Pure Charm

    Les was my cousin and "charm" should have been his middle name. With his big smile and a few well chosen words he could get anything he wanted--including chocolate ice cream for breakfast. We can only imagine the potential that went to waste when he was killed.
  • Thinking about you

    Still think about you and Blair Swain and the time we spent together at Fort Dix in 1966. We were the 3 Musketeers. Still so sorry you were sold that phoney Bill of Goods about going to Fort Benning for Infantry OCS to get into the Accounting department of the Army.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear 1LT Lester Lee Wood, 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

    Graduated together in 1962 from Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas Texas.
    One of my best friends in ROTC and band. I couldnt afford a clarinet so he lent me one of his for the whole year. Went fishing at white rock lake and smoked my first cigar with him. Sort of like a big brother to me. Had many good times together and will never forget him. Lost contact with him after I went into the Air Force in "62. Believe he went to college for 4 years while I spent those 4 years in the AF. Was deply saddened when I heard if his death. Always will remember him and the sacriface he has made for us all.
