    Myself, Greg Gregersen, and Ted all attended high school in Glendale, Arizona. I was lucky to catch a 3 day pass and flew up to Da Nang to see Ted and Greg. From what I remember, we had one hell of a time that Memorial Day, 1970. It was Greg who notified me of Ted's passing some days later. RIP my friend.

    Dear CPL Richard Theodore Carlson, 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
