    Will always remember your courage and sacrifice. Pray you are with Doc Vernon Lackey who was killed next day!

    Although I did not know you, I honor your name. Although I did not know you, I honor your history. Although I did not know you, I honor your service, because without you, I would not be free. I was 7 years old when you honored your country with your life. I am now 58 years old, because you were a citizen of the Home of the Brave.

    Dear SSGT Donald Coleman,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. December is almost gone, along with all the preparations. It is the 4th Day of Christmas. 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.

    Our brave and loving baby brother, Bill and I miss you everyday. We remember your laughing, "piss and vinegar" smile, big heart, and those dancing feet! The world has not been as bright since that terrible day you were taken. How proud we are of you, you gave your life so your brother in arms could live. We know God has you in a very special place and we could not have asked you to do one thing different; that was exactly who you were! Thank you for your ultimate gift.

    Dear SSGT Donald Huston Coleman, 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
