Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Gerald D Baker, 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 Remember a Big Brother

I clearly remember the night you left to go to Vietnam. I was only 11 then. We all went to the airport to say goodbye. I remember hugging you tight while having a really sick feeling that I would never see you again. A short five months later mother answered a knock at the front door, and got the news we were all terrified of hearing.
These are the awful memories. What I prefer to remember is a big brother, fifteen years older than me who was so full of life. I remember being so entertained by stories that you would tell at family dinners. I remember when I was five years old and the flower girl in your wedding. I was afraid to walk down the aisle. Then I saw you smiling at the front of the church. I remember when a bully that lived up the street burned me with a match. I came home crying. You said you would take care of it and you did. I remember whenever you were around things seemed to be brighter.
