    Dear CPL John Martin Burke, sir,

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

    I remember that you and I had just returned from An Hoa combat base and all the stuff that happened their. We were at the division supply office and I said let us get a beer. You said no. I left and a few minutes later 3 mortars came
    in and killed you.
