    Dear SP4 Steven Sam Choy Ching, 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

    I grew up with Steven Ching in Kalihi on the islnad of Oahu. Steve was an only child. He had a very large train set that his father mounted on a talbe. I rode to high school with Steve in his 1958 Chevy Impala. I remember the day I heard his name on the radio. I did not believe it was him.
    On July 2, 2004 I had the chance to vist the wall and find his name in the listing. I remember you Steven Ching as a 18 year old friend.
  • To A Hero

    Posted on 5/23/02
    I am an eighth grade student at Parker Junior High School. My history class took a field trip to the Vietnam Wall, and our assignment was to choose a single name from the 58,000 that were repesented there. I picked this person simply for the reason that he shared my grandmother's maiden name. I have never met the man Steven Sam Choy Ching, let alone heard of him in my life. But it is this unfamiliar and unknown person that I hold with the highest respect. It is this person that gave his life for our country, a nineteen-year-old that sacrificed his hopes and dreams for America. I admire his bravery and am honored to have found out a little more about this courageous soul. Thank you, Steven Sam Choy Ching.
