Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Bruce Elliott Funk, 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

One of Philadelphia PA's 630 fallen sons.

Article were taken from the Philadelphia Daily News of October 26, 1987. The special supplement entitled, ' THE SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY,' was published in conjunction with the dedication of the Philadelphia Viet Nam Memorial.

"Funk left Northeast High School in the 11th grade and served in the Coast Guard, where he was a radioman for four years. He left the Coast Guard in January 1968 when they would not send him to Viet Nam, and joined the Marines two months later. He was sent to Viet Nam in September 1968 and assigned to Company H of the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. The 23-year-old lance corporal, a radioman, died on May 2, 1969, in Quang Tri Province. He was survived by his father, who was a 27-year Navy veteran, his mother and three sisters, including one who had recently been discharged from the Navy."

Semper Fidelis, Marine!
