    from what i have been reading i hear you were a good man. you would fight for your country and were willing to die for it. you fought well and fought hard you fought knowing you might not come back but you fought anyway you fought knowing that and that made you a great soldier, carrying your weapon into battle knowing your who platoon might not come back.

    Patrick K. Burke, U.S. Army of Norwood, Massachusetts is lovingly remembered by family and friends.

    The accompanying photo is a much better representation of Pat than what the VVMF currently has.

    Dear CPL Patrick Kevin 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
