Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Charles M Gattis 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

Good Dude

Chuck was one of the four guys I entered the USMC with and he was assigned in a different company in the Battalion I was in in RVN. He was a great guy and I think about him often and when I do think about him he always has a smile on his face.
