    On behalf of all the paratroopers who served with you in the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Separate) and all who followed, we offer our respect and remembrance of your ultimate sacrifice. May you never be forgotten and your family and friends take comfort in your valor in serving.

    Sylvester Wright was a good friend to me, and we fought in Tet offensive Jan. 30, 1968. He was wounded on that day, grazed just above his shoulder which cut off his dog tags. He told me that because his dogs tags dropping to the ground in front of him caused him to lean down to pick them up. It saved his life, the enemy began to fire automatic fire over his head. He is a hero, to America and to all who served with him. I will never forget his bravery in combat and friendship.

    Dear PFC Sylvester Wright Jr, 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

    It's been a few years now, and I still remember we were getting so close, I don't think I will ever forget. Still missing you.
