    Dear SGT John Benjamin Abbatemarco, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Students throughout America should learn of the Vietnam War. It was one of Americas greatest struggles, and many lives were sacrificed. Thousands died fighting for our freedom, and they can't just go forgotten. That is one reason students should be educated on the war. Also, it was a historically important event for America's foreign relations, especially with Vietnam and the other southeastern Asia countries. It also reveals much about the president of the time, and his actions in carrying out the war, and how it was handled at home. All this information is very important to teach students.
