    Dear CPL Clyde Ralph Coburn, 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 was one of the pilots that flew this fine soldier into battle on Dec 9, 1967. Our aircraft was shot down and we spent the night on the mountain with our infantry comrades fighting for our lives. The fighting was fierce but because of the courage and determination of guys like Clyde some of us survived. I will always remember that night. God bless Delta Company, 2/7 Cav.
