Thank You

Dear Sgt Charles Crutchfield,
Thank you for your service as an Antitank Assaultman. Yesterday was your 52nd anniversary, so sad. 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.

A great leader

Crutchfield was my squad leader at ITR or my first duty station before going to Vietnam. He taught me so much and took me under his wing. He made me feel special because I was such a quick learner and felt he could be a great leader teacher while caring for those he liked. You could always tell he came from a small town, but the way he handled situations you would think he was a Marine his whole life. Somewhere our orders changed and I joined another platoon and eventually became a weapons expert. I was real sad the day I heard Sargent Crutchfield was killed in action so close to coming home. I still had months to go, but managed to get wounded and survived. I still have pictures of him and I showing me how to do something. Great guy, still miss him after all these years.
