An Honorable Man

I served with Melvin ( aka Butch ) as his RTO when I first arrived in Dagger Company 4th of the 39th. This was late in March of 1969 ( about this date 50 years ago ) . Butch was a serious guy and was winding down his one year tour in the 9th. He was so excited to see photo's of his new born Daughter when she arrived. I would have been right next to Butch the day he made the ultimate sacrifice but I switched my RTO duty to the Platoon leader and another hero took the radio for Butch . It was a very sad day in my life to see many comrades including Melvin leave for Heaven. We were both from PA so we had some memories to share during our short 30 day friendship . RIP Brother.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Melvin Grayson Ehrhart, 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
