  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/30/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear SP4 Harold Edward Cashman 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

  • Wishing To Honor

    Posted on 9/8/07 - by Jim Hartman
    My name is Jim Hartman. I am working with PA State Representative Thomas Murt. Tom has received authorization to build a memorial for our Viet Nam hometown heroes from Hatboro, PA. Bill Ahlum lived on Tom's street. They were neighbors.

    We are searching for people who knew our hometown boys (7) to gain some insight into them for the memorial. For fear of stirring up any bad memories, can you provide us with any insight?

    For the record tom is a decorated Iraq vet and I'm an old SEABEE MCB 71 68-74.

    Tom's email is

    Our KIA:
    William John Ahlum Army Captain neoighbor of Tom Murt
    Howard Edward Cashman Army SP4
    Jame Patrick Kelly Army 2LT
    Joseph Lannon USMC PFC childhood friend and classmate
    Robert Preston Ruttle Army SP4
    Ronald Carlton smith Army SP4
    Robert Richard Wright Army 1LT

    God Bless and thank you,
    Jim Hartman

    Army Sp/4 Harold E. Cashman Jr., 23, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold E. Cashman Sr., of 337 Corinthian ave., Hatboro.
    Sp/4 Cashman, a paratrooper, needed six credits to graduate from Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture in Doylestown. He wanted to become an ornamental horticulturist.
    "He never complained about the Army or even the food," his mother said. His father said his son was due for rest and relaxation from combat at the end of February. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Judith Ann Cooper.
  • Uncle Eddie, I Miss You, I Barely Met You

    Posted on 11/13/02 - by Christopher Cooper
    My Uncle Eddie was killed in action when I was a year old. He was my Mothers only brother and I know how hard it was on our whole family. Even now I cry for him, I wish he were here. I was brought up listening to stories about what a bright, sensative, and funny young man he was. I have stood in front of the frame holding his medals on the wall next to his picture in my Granparents house so many times I can see exactly his face frozen in time. I can't imnagine the pain of losing a child, or a brother. My Grandparents are gone now, my mother will have the medals on her wall and every time I go home I will stand in front of his picture and wonder what the world missed out on. I am doing my best to remember him, my wife and I are naming a child after him, and I am hoping beyond hope, that there will be no wars to worry about when he grows to manhood. If there is anybody out there that knew my uncle, please send me a note.
