  • Thinking of You

    Sitting here watching Ken Burns beautiful documentary of Vietnam, crying, thinking of you, of the celebration we just had for Grandpas 95th birthday, thinking of your beautiful daughter and her family, seeing my father (your brother) and all of your siblings and their families. Wondering what could've been, and watching the ugliness of the war that took you from your family too soon.

    Dear SP4 Walter John Carney, 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
