Remembering An American Hero

Dear GSGT Roy Allen Fryman, 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

Navy Cross Citation

The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Staff Sergeant Roy Allen Fryman (MCSN: 1356690), United States Marine Corps (Reserve), for extraordinary heroism on 29 April 1968 as a Platoon Commander, First Force Reconnaissance Battalion, FIRST Marine Division (Reinforced), Fleet Marine Force, during operations against enemy aggressor forces in the Republic of Vietnam. While leading a long-range reconnaissance patrol through the southeastern portion of Phu Loc Valley, Thua Thien Province, Sergeant Fryman, hearing enemy troops approaching along the trail leading to the patrol's position, immediately organized and triggered an ambush, firing bursts from his automatic rifle which killed one of the hostile soldiers, while the patrol killed another. During this brief fire fight, an enemy grenade landed in the position occupied by Sergeant Fryman and three companions. He quickly picked up the deadly missile and hurled it back at the enemy, killing another hostile soldier. Although suffering a slight concussion from the explosion, Sergeant Fryman steadfastly refused medical aid and moved his patrol 100 meters south of the trail where he deployed three-man ambush teams. Subsequently, he and his men succeeded in killing three more enemy troops and wounding two. Following this action, Sergeant Fryman prepared a landing zone for a medical helicopter in order to evacuate the wounded prisoners. He then established a defense perimeter and remained at the scene with the point man to halt the advance of a numerically superior enemy force while the rest of the unit withdrew from the area. As a result of Sergeant Fryman's exceptional knowledge of patrol techniques and tactics, his patrol accomplished its hazardous mission without a single Marine casualty. His great personal valor, aggressive leadership, and unfaltering devotion to duty throughout these actions reflect the highest credit upon himself, the Marine Corps, and the United States Naval Service.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die
