A friend from Edinburg Texas

I was with Jr. ,as he liked to be called, for a couple of months in Saigon. We got there Aug.1965 with the 125th Air Traffic Control Company. He told me how he had been initially a paratrooper but injured his leg and had been then trained as a lineman and assigned to the 125thATC. When I told him I was an airplane mechanic waiting to be assigned an airplane to crew-chief, he told me he had been taught to fly a crop duster airplane back in Mathis when he was 14 or 15. He also loaned me his books he had studied to get his license. Also he taught me how to jump out of the airplane if I ever needed to. Later, after I had been assigned an airplane in DaNang and later Cam Ranh, I would see him for a day or two whenever I was with the airplane on a trip to Saigon for radios or other supplies. I don't remember seeing him a year later Aug '66 when my year was over and I was coming back. I would be honored to hear from some one in his family. [email protected] And Jr. I will see you in heaven.Thank you for being my friend.

My Brother, My Hero

Dear Brother, not a day goes by that I wish that I could talk to you. I was so young and my memory of you is like a dream. As I age I know my time will come to an end here on earth and then we'll meet again. I fear not death for I know you will be there to greet me when I pass. Love and Miss You.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Eristeo Gutierrez 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
