    Dear Sgt Bennie Clayton,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Say hi to my grandfather in heaven, his name is Benny too. December has begun, along with all the preparations. It is so important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear SGT Bennie Clifford Clayton, 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

    You knew my brother, Johnnie McDowell, (McDaniel)(Panel 19E)and our family. You rest only a few feet from Johnnie at Allen Cemetery in Gower, MO.
    I visit you every time I visit Johnnie. Thank you for your sacrifice for our country.
