    Dear CPL Lester Vincent Cafiero 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I'm Chip's nephew Peter Cafiero. I was unfortunate to have never met him but wonder every day what it would be like if he were here today. I never met Chip as I was born after his death. In his memory though, I was born March 12, exactly 12 years after his death to the day. He made a difference to the world with his service in the Army of the United States of America. He will always be remembered to me as a man of honor and bravery.

    I never met Uncle Chip, however, I am proud to be his nephew and respect his extreme bravery and service to this country. I often wonder how my life and the lives of my family would have been different if he were here and that answer I'll never know. But what I do know is that all of our lives have been enriched because of his service and the sacrifices that he made.
