A family's honor

Kenny was a kind, quiet person who loved the marine dress uniform. It was the uniform that made him decide that he wanted to be a Marine. I laugh, because knowing his personality, the Marine's did not seem like a good fit for him, but he loved it.

It's hard to believe that he was taken from us so soon after he joined, and only when I was much older did I realize that he was killed during the Tet Offensive.

Kenny wasn't the only casualty for my family in that war, because he was stripped of dog tags and gear one of my older brothers was sent to California to identify the body out of over 300 corpses. Back in those days they didn't have PTSD and psychological help available -- you just sucked it up. Dick "Richard" Hudson was an MP in the United States Army. He was often call the Marlboro Man because he was tall, dark and extremely handsome. After identifying my brothers body and going thru all of the other dead he tried multiple suicide attempts that eventually destroyed his brain and crippled him. The oldest brother John, also served, as has my son, nieces and nephews. My cousin Robert Wayne was shot by machine gun in Vietnam and even though none of the wounds hit a vital organ, he was eventually had to use a cane then a wheelchair. I am proud of all my brothers and so this isn't just about Kenneth Wayne, it's about all my family that has served. They are representative of the grit that Kenny was made of. We do not badmouth our President, we do not badmouth our country and we stand with our hand proudly over our hearts as the flag is displayed and the National Anthem is played. That is honor, nothing else compares.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Kenneth Wayne Hudson, 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
