My brother “Monte” aka Edd and “Fast Eddy”

I’m Ed’s sister, Janice, and I just learned about this commemorative website. Thank you Bill S, Dale G and Lance G for sharing your personal memories of my brother. I am deeply grateful to each of you and will treasure them in my heart.
As for his “Fast Eddy” nickname, I’m guessing it had to do with the way he lived his too short life: with pizazz, a little on the reckless side, a tender heart and a quirky sense of humor.
He was deeply loved and greatly missed.
Thank you for keeping his memory alive!

Last chopper assault

I was on the chopper with " Fast Eddy " this was going to be his last assault, he wanted to sit in the door so as he could take pictures, he was one happy guy, a short timer! ------ We "Bravo 2 / 327 infantry 101 AB " miss you and speak of you often ! No Slack

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Edward La Mont Handy, 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
