  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CPL John Joseph Zagata, 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

  • Still thinking of you

    Posted on 9/8/03
    We were so young and alive that warm Spring day at Fort Huachuaca, Arizona, just weeks before going to Nam. You were such a gentle young man, I couldn't understand why a Loyola graduate would want to be in the infantry and you told me it was because you loved the out-doors. We flew to VietNam together and we said goodbye at LongBinh, you going to the First Cav and me to the First Field Forces. I looked for you a year later at CamRanh Bay and couldn't believe it when I learned you were gone. I still think of you John, and hope you are where the sun is always shining. Your buddie.
