My older cousin

He was my third cousin. I remember his going-away party, I was only 6. I was walking up the basement stairs and he picked me up really high and ran up the stairs with me in his arms...I giggled. I'm almost 55 and I still can visualize that moment.

His was the first funeral I attended. I remember that day like it was yesterday, I remember the grief and tears for an 18 year old hero.

His mother passed away January 7, 2005 ... my Mom's birthday. I told Mom to celebrate "Aunt" Mary's passing, for on that day she was reunited with her son ... who was her life!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Edward Atkucunas, 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
