My High School and Jr. College Fried

Frank was one of the influential persons in my life. An inspiration to excell, do good and how to act. He taught me how to play chess and become a member of the Joliet Junior College Chess Club. We were in math, science and German classes together.

I fly the American Flag on my flag pole in my yard of my Lake home in Missouri in his honor.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Frank John Gasperich Jr, 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
