50 Years Ago...

50 years ago... I met Chickie in Vietnam, even though we grew up 4 blocks away from each other. I was back home when he died and was honored when his parents asked me to be a pallbearer at his funeral. He is buried at Beverly National Cemetery in Beverly, NJ. I visit his name on the Wall whenever I'm in DC. He is remembered.

My Good Friend Chickie

Hi Chick,

I have a rubbing of your name from the DC wall over my desk along with several other friends and acquaintances who didn't make it back. I think about you often and reflect back on the days when we used to hang out at Horn & Hardart's after school checking out all the female talent that went by. Ahhh, life was much simpler back then! Hopefully, we will meet again someday and rekindle our old friendship and share our experiences. Monday is Veteran's day and there isn't a Vets Day that goes by when I don't think of you and whisper a silent hello, hoping you can hear me. Rest in Peace my friend.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Charles J Gibilterra 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
