My friend Vic

Vic, even though we only knew each other for a very short time, we bonded immediately.. My first day of AIT, you came busting into my bay, yelling at the top of you lungs, in your best drill sergeants voice, asking if anyone was from Michigan.. And Kalamazoo. I answered yes to both questions. We were instant friends. We were inseparable after that. Even when you left for your 30 day leave, we promised to meet at home, when I got my leave.
When I found out you were killed, part of me died too. There's an empty spot in my heart thats never been filled. I miss you my friend. Till we meet again...

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Victor Leroy Austin, 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
