    Dear SGT Laurence Curtis Caplan, 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

    Larry was a fun loving guy..Our families grew up together on the same block and we were all like family. He enjoyed his motorcycle and participating with his brothers in hill climbs and scramble races. The family had many trophies from those motorcycle days. But the biggest trophy our Sgt. Laurence Caplan was awarded, was the Army's Commendation Medal for heroism for bravery in a search and destroy mission. That was just five short months before he was killed. We thank him and all those who have served our great country.

  • Rest in Peace
