Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Charles Raymond Hamilton, 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

From a classmate and teammate at Fenger High School

Charles -
We first met at Curtis in our freshman year, 1962. You were a bright, enthusiastic young man and a good basketball player. You played on the team all 4 years. You had a growth spurt during and after your junior year and became an outstanding basketball player. Long arms, an excellent jumper, a very good shot, a good defender with great control of the ball with your ball handling skills.
The remembrance I wish to make is of a huddle called by the coach at the end of a time out during a game. I think the game was close in the score at the time. We all had our hands in the middle of the huddle. For some reason the coach thought you were missing. He called out "Hamilton, Hamilton!!" Someone pointed out that you were there. Then you said to the coach "Couldn't you tell by the color of my hand?" Everyone cracked up with laughter. It was a great moment to remember in the late winter of 1966.
I was at the Fenger High School 40th reunion last evening, March 18, 2006. I found out there you were killed in Vietnam in 1970. Thank you, friend, for a treasured memory of a wonderful young man who enriched the lives of many.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932
