Columbia College

Howie was my roommate at Columbia College in 1958-1959. We lived in John Jay Hall in a two room triple. He was a warm and kind roommate. When I was a Freshman he was a Junior. He studied all the time because he was pre med. I lost touch after I transferred to a different college but learned years later that he was a casualty of the Vietnam War. As Memorial Day 2015 approaches I wish to pay my respects to Howie and his family.

Maybe

Your picture appeared when I Googled my name, and we share similar features - at least when I was much younger. I know little about my family history, so maybe we are related. About the same age but I never served in the military. I assume from the postings that you were a doctor. Life is not fair.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Howard Martin Gerstel, 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
