Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Richard Clark Babb 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

Memorial Day 2011

Babbs was 3 years older than I which is a lot when you are 14.I remember him as a gangly kid just before he went to boot camp. He was a young man, ramrod straight just before shipping off to Viet Nam. He was proud to serve and I remember him saying ' I will be a SGT. when I get back'. He was ready for the unknown. Courage.
