I remember his father

I was only 5 when Rudolph was killed. I never knew him. I only remember him from tidbits of information from my Nana and my mother. I do remember his father coming to visit us from time to time in a huge car that he had. We called him Papa. From what I understand he was his fathers only child. My grandmother told me that his father wept and wept at the funeral. I never learned of his mother. Rudolph's grave lays right next to several members of my family at St. Mary Cemetery in Canton Ma. Including those of my sister and my son.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SP5 Rudolph Ernest Araujo, 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

Reading of the Names

On Sunday, November 10, 2002 I had the honour to read aloud the name of Rudolph and 29 others
during the 20th anniversary memorial at The Wall in Washington, DC. Volunteers, family
members, fellow vets, and others read all of the 58, 299 names on The Wall over the 4 days
leading up to Veterans Day.

It was an honour to be able to read Rudolph's name as part of the tribute. I spend many of
my weekends as a volunteer for the National Park Service working at The Wall. If anyone
has any information they could provide to me on the this hero's life it would be nice to hear from
you. Millions visit The Wall each year but many don't stop to think that those names were
real people with families and friends who care. I'd like to be able to talk to people about
Rudolph and what he meant to those who cared for him.
