    Dear CPL Edward Anderson, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter

  • Basic Training at Ft. Knox Ky

    Posted on 2/13/01 - by John E.Roark, Jr, (SP5 USA -'67-69)
    PVT. Ed Anderson and I were in the same basic training unit (A-15-4) at Ft. Knox, Ky (Oct-Dec 1967). Ed was from Lynn and I was from Chelmsford, Mass. Ed and I trained together for a short period of time but I became a 'fast' friend because of his warm personality, honesty, 'openess' and helpful nature. I was suprised that Ed was a boxer in the Lynn area becuse he was the 'least' aggressive person that I knew in our training platoon. My most 'haunting' remembrance of Ed was the day we got our orders to AIT training. Ed was going to Ft. Polk, LA for Infantry AIT and had a 'premonition' that he would go to RNV and be 'killed'. Ed was very distraught and despite our attempts to console him, he was not able to 'cast off' his 'premonition'. I served in Korea with the 7th INF Div on the DMZ. In about May 1968, I read in 'Stars & Stripes' that Ed had been "KIA" in RVN. I still say a prayer for him and all the others that we lost in RVN.

    Thank You for the 'opportunity' to share my remembrance of Ed Anderson. We miss them all and will not forget them!
