Always a winner

Eddie (along with John Mackesy) and I were roommates my freshman year at Harvard. He was the ideal combination of fun and serious study, showing this brash kid from Dorchester how it's done. Eddie was the only person I ever knew who won the Avalon-Hill war game of "Waterloo" as Napoleon. I enlisted in the Army Reserve in my junior year, and was called to active duty in January of 1969, spending my Vietnam tour in HHQ of the 18th Engineer Brigade. Eddie was one of many of my friends who willingly served at a time when such service was reviled and ridiculed. Some of them were wounded, forever sadly Eddie's name is on The Wall, one among many, but always one of a kind. Rest in Peace.

My Hero - Eddie Argy

Eddie grew up two houses away on Linwwod St and was four years ahead of me at the Immacualte and at Malden Catholic. Being older than me he could have been a bully but he was a rellay nice kid who would share his comic book collection with a snotty nosed kid. He was an excellent athlete at MC and went on to Harvard to excel. Upon graduation he was acceped into Harvard medical school, but thought he should serve his country first. The last time I saw him as at the Medford Public Library around June of 1967. He congratulated me on being accepted to Boston College. In January of 1968 we got the news that Eddie had been killed in action in Viet Nam. I remember his father asking my Dad to accompany him to Breslin's funeral home to identify his remains. When Dad got home he was as white as a sheet. My Dad died two months later and I always suspected that the thought of Eddie contributed to his passing. I recall being startled by the twenty-one gun salute on that freezing cold morning at Oak Grove Cemetary. Seeing his Parents, Ed and Marge and his beautiful sisters burying that wonderful son and brother still makes me very sad. I think of Eddie often and how many lives he would have saved as a brilliant surgeon or medical researcher. God bless you Eddie.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear American Hero,

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 (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
