    Dear SGT Michael John Charley, 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

    He loved us so.
    Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
    In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
    He loved us so.
    Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
    With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
    He was our defender, and he kept us free!
    He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
    He loved uis so, and we should know.
    For we loved him so.
    Sergeant Charley, your sacrifice was NOT in vain. America is still our country, free and strong. You gave your life for the freedoms we enjoy today. Avonmore's Jill Corey, one of my three TOP SONGBIRDS, along with Julie Andrews and Dusty Springfield (although Dusty is no longer with us on Earth), would be proud of your service to our country.
