    SFC Brooks & I served together at Ft. Gordon training troops. He was a first class soldier, loved his family and was an inspiration to all of us who worked with him. May he rest in eternal peace.

    Dear SFC Brooks,
    I hope someone has your photo and puts it here because this wall of faces really needs yours. Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. It is another summer, as time continues to pass since Vietnam. It is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear SFC William Roger Brooks, 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
