My cousin “Gil”

Francis Gilbert (Gil) Henry was my first cousin (my dad’s sister’s son) and he joined the US Marine Corps in 1967. He was only in Vietnam for less than two months when he was killed during the Tet Offensive near Phu Bai. He was ably 22. His brother was over in Vietnam and so was my brother. Gil wanted to become a California police officer upon his return from the war. I was blessed to live the life Gil deserved. I raised two wonderful daughters and experienced so much in life. And I became that California cop. I retired as a police chief and will always be thankful for the inspiration Gil’s legacy gave to me on my journey. RIP my cousin.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Francis Gilbert Henry, 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
