Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Odis Leon Gosnell, 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

Your Family Has Not Forgotten

I never met my Uncle Odie. I was born 4 years after his death. However I found all the letters he sent to his brother, my dad. I found all the slides he sent. By reading his letters I got a snapshot of the kind of person my Uncle was. He was funny, hardworking, proud. Family meant a lot to him. My mom was a great baker. He asked often for cookies to be sent to the platoon. My dad hasn't spoke much about losing his brother, but he has shared stories with us kids about them growing up. Just to correct something on this site. Odie is actually buried in Lansing, Illinois. The cemetery's name is the same. We are honoring the men that were with him, by his side sacrificing everything they had. He took those pictures and sent them home to us because these men were his brothers. To all the Vietnam Soldiers WELCOME HOME!! You have not been forgotten. You are hero's to us.
