Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Ray B Debusk Jr, 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

What is precious is to Never Forget

Was stationed with Ray at Camp Lejeune

and in Cuba. I'll never forget the day we got word about Ray. He was a fine Marine and he will never be forgotten.



I Think Continually of Those



Near the snow, near the sun, in the highest fields

See how these names are feted by the waving

Grass

And by the streamers of white cloud

And whispers of wind in the listening sky.

The names of those who in their lives fought

for life

Who wore at their hearts the fire’s center.

Born of the sun they traveled a short while

Towards the sun,

And left the vivid air signed with their Honor.



-excerpted from a poem by Stephen Spender-1933

I remember our last meeting before you left for Vietnam. Your words haunt me 41 years later. You knew you were not coming back. In your honor and for your mother, Billie and your brother, Cress.
