I concider Howard Ashford to be the best friend i have had the pleaasue to have

Howard and I arrived in Aco / 2nd 60th one month apart and became the best of friends instantly and on March 3rd 1968 I lost part of my heart , I have missed his friendship every day of my life after that terrible day. I wonder every day how far in life would he have gone if he had lived , no telling ! On 9/6/2016 (tomorrow) I am going to my brave friends grave to give him the good bye that I was not able to give him on March 3 1968 in the rice paddies of South Vietnam . My brave friend did not give his life for South Vietnam but instead he gave it for the very people of the United States that called him names and tried to shame him . He was a wonderful man and don't you people ever forget it !!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Howard Herrell Ashford, 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
