Remembering An American Hero
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
I am so thankful for this website; My sister actually found this and Emailed it to me. I am 43 and have never seen the picture posted on this wall nor have I ever gotten the priveledge to read about his last letter home. I always missed my daddy growing up and for a very long time resented the army because of his death. My mother has given me pictures of my father and they are hanging in my house. I look like my dad. I am a nursing assistant;phlebotomist;and have had several classes in college.My home is Bunnlevel, N.C. I have now grown up and realized what the Armed Forces means and realized that my father was my HERO and helped save a lot of lives. My oldest daughter has married a fellow in the army. I know this was what he wanted to do in life. I missed out on getting to know his side of the family, it still bothers me.
I have three children and one grandchild and a grandchild on the way, due July 19th of this year, 2012. I have a daughter Lexie 21, a son Dalton 10, and Mylei 4. Lyric is my grandbaby and she is 14 months old. Even though we never got to see eachother daddy, I am looking very forward to meeting you at the golden gate in Heaven, I know he will be holding his hand out to me... I love you and you will never be forgotten daddy!
Your daughter, Tanya Hartman Chapman
