Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Charles Peter Barnes, 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

A Great Friend

Charlie and I grew up in the same neighborhood. Played football, hung out, worked together from elementary through high school. We were good friends sharing some great years. He failed to talk me into joining the Army on the buddy system at graduation and we went our separate ways. It would be really just a year later June '68 that my Mom called me with the news that he had been killed in Viet Nam. It was a sad day for many people most of all his parents and his family. Charlie was liked by all and he remains in our hearts with some sadness that we aren't able to enjoy each others company as we grow old. But a few of us visit his grave site at Fort Bliss National Army Cemetery and crack a beer in his honor. We also visit with his parents. Amazing people that continue to give to veterans and wounded warriors. Yes we will remember him and those that made the ultimate sacrifice.


Miss you my friend.

I was there

I was there when Charlie was hit by the booby trap. I watched as the medics carried him to the chopper. We were near LZ Thunder in Quang Ngai Province.
