Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Robert Edwin Echols, 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

Bobby

Thank you all for your service. Many years ago I wrote a story about the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
A friend of mine at the time remembered a solder who died fighting over in Vietnam. He was 19 yrs old (Robert E. Echols) I asked her if I could write a short story about him and if she had any information I could use. She told me about how he was a basketball player and his personality was upbeat. He made an impression on her.

This is the story I wrote. It has become more than just a fiction story about a solder I never knew. in a lot of ways I believe this could be the story of many men and women that has served. Thanks your service. I hope this brings light to Bobby's personality.

Follow the link below for the story.

Never Forgotten

Always Remembered

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From all your "Band of Nam Brothers"
