Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Willie Roger Griffith, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Still Miss You

It's hard to believe it's almost been 50 years and I still miss you so much. I think of all the things we did as boys you were always my big brother that I never had. But two cousins could never have been closer. I am and have always been so proud of you I have all of your medals and I will pass them down to my son who was named after you (Roger) who is now a Sgt. Major in the Marine Corps, rest easy Roger for it won't be long until we shall meet again!!!

We share more than just a name...

I heard so much about you as a kid. I wanted to know so much more, but there was no one that could fill in the blanks. My dad waited most of his adult life to finally get those blank spots filled by some of your brothers from Nam and I'll forever be thankful for them doing that for him.


I remember reading all the letters that you had sent home, and I hung the one picture that I could find of you up in my room when I was a teenager. All I ever wanted to be was a Marine, to do my part like you did yours. You inspired me and I never even got the chance to meet you... That day will come though, not in this life but the next...



Never above you, never below you, always beside you..
