    I will always remember your smile and kindness. I will always have you in my heart and will never forget the joy you gave my family . I was blessed with a daughter that was born December 18th the same day as my friend. I was only about 13 or 14 when you died. You will always be in my heart and I will live you always. You were a gentlemen . Mom said you were the perfect young man.

    Dear PFC Leroy Burks Jr, 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
