My Father

I never had the chance to know you in person, but I know you from stories and 2 picture's. I do know you spent 2wks with me after I was born in 1/68 and then you left for the service. I'm hurt that you was taken from us, but I understand why you did what you did. I no longer have anger with the decision you made. I LOVE YOU for what you done.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PVT Roland Lee 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, Sir

Curt Carter

My Dear Twin

The years have passed although it seems like yesterday. You are not forgotten. I am still 21 years 11 months 13 days old. I have never celebrated a birthday until we can be joined together again.
