Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Alonzo Lenord Dixon, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Never Forget

Alonzo was a foster child and became a neighbor out East of Danvers when he was in grade school. I had a special fondness for Alonzo because I had just been adopted out of an orphanage. So we had some common ground.

He had a great since of humor and I think he used it timely and wissely to cover the hurt of rejectment experieniced. We had great fun playing cowboys and Indians, walking the pastures and just talking about our short experiences in life. He was way above his young years do to tough experiences and wise to the ways of life.

One day the State removed him from our neighbors and I lost contact with him. I never saw him again and remember reading the Pantagraph reporting his death from hostile fire. All these years have passed but I have never forgotten Alonzo. Eternal peace be yours my brother.
