Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Jerry Dean Barksdale, 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

40 Year Anniversary

Jerry was everyone's friend. He was truly the nicest guy in our unit. With his soft character I often wonder why he chose the Marines and how he made it through boot camp. Today marks the 40 year anniversary of when as walking point was shot and killed. After crossing a large rice paddy we entered a tree line and the shots rang out. He was killed and Schultz got wounded. There was no fire fight after that we just got them out of there and headed back to Phu Bai. The next day it was into the hell of Hue City. As Barky's squad leader I want him to know that I will never forget him. I am wearing a bracelet with his name on today to honor him and his service.
