Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Henry Herschel Ballew, 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

NEVER FORGOTTEN

I never knew you but I know there is something more than just a picture and a face. You have a story like everyone else. I will never see your face for real but i do know you unselfishly gave and sacrificed for your country for whatever reason and I truly admire you being so young and having the courage to do so. I am thankful and will never forget

I will always remember

We were high school sweethearts for a time. Herschel was one of the most gentle, kind-hearted people I've ever known. After all these years, I still feel honored to have known a true hero.

My Brother

Herschel was my brother,and I guess out of all the brothers and sisters I knew him best. He was the sweetest and caring person. He was also a hero and served his country with outstanding honors. I will miss him always.
