Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Timothy Lawrence Gilson, 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

I Knew You

Tim:

We became friends in San Diego after we arrived at Boot Camp. God, we were young and so vulnerable at 19 years of age. I still have the book showing us with shaved heads. You knew what to do from ROTC and I was just a city kid from Chicago. After San Diego, we went to Pendleton. I went one way due to my MOS and you another as an 0300.

I looked for you afterwards and could not find you till years later when I asked my son to look for you on The Wall. I was never able to go there. I have the tracing of your name. You will always be remembered.
