Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Michael Henry Deragon, 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

My Friend From LZ Sally (Thua Thien)

I remember Mike from Fort Dix New Jersey where we were in training together. We went to Nam together in May of 1969 and ended up in the same division, 101st Airborne. He went to A Company and I ended up in D Company. I was there when his unfortunate death occurred. At the time I was with another friend, named Tom Bazemore, in the same Company as me, Delta. Tom died six days later. I have been to the wall and have both their name rubbings. I regret though that I had a great picture of the three of us on our way up north to Sally. Since then the picture and others have been lost like so many of my friends of that era. Mike was a fine man and fun to be around. He was a soldier who gave his all. He died in the streets of LZ Sally a small outpost camp in Thua Thien province. I will always love and miss all of them. Ken
