    Dear PFC Gary Wayne Buchanan, 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

    "These heroes ... died for liberty — they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless ... they are at peace."
    -- R.G. Ingersoll (1833-1899)

    You and your loved ones are in our thoughts and hearts.
