Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC James Christian Freidt, 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

Our first casualty

James was the first casualty of over 162 suffered by the 1st Battalion 50th Infantry in Vietnam. He was in my Platoon and I have written a short story of the events leading up to his death. He was a good soldier.

Pictured with this remembrance is a memorial statue that is inscribed with Jim's name. Contact me at the e-mail address given for Memorial Service Information. (Every two years at the site of the Memorial at 50th Infantry HQ, Fort Benning, GA)Visit http://www.ichiban1.org
