Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Patrick Martin Grella, 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

Thank you!

Patrick,
Our class at Gridley High School in Gridley Illinois is doing a project to honor all the American Heroes who gave their lives fighting for our country and what it stands for. We will never forget the courageous sacrifice that you made so others could know the freedom you knew. We will never be able to adequately thank or repay you, but we are sincerely grateful. You will always be remembered as an American Hero; courageous, brave, and free. God Bless you and your loved ones! Thank you!
Sincerely,
Kaleigh Schlipf
