Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Richard Alan Kaske, 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

IN LOVING MEMORY OF RICHARD ALAN KASKE

YOU DIED 12/21/67 SO FAR AWAY FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS. YET THERE WERE OTHERS WITH YOU WHO FOUGHT ALONGSIDE YOU, AND CARED ABOUT YOU ALSO. SOME ALSO MADE THE UNTIMATE SACRIFICE, SOME CAME HOME SCARRED BY THE MEMORIES. YOU WERE MY FIRST CHILDHOOD SWEETHEART. IF ONE CAN LOVE SO YOUNG, THEN WE DID. WE WENT ON TO LOVE OTHERS BUT REMAINED FRIENDS AND IN DOING SO LEARNED ONE OF LIFE'S MOST VALUABLE LESSONS. OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE, YOU HAD THE MOST PROFOUND EFFECT. AND THE NEWS OF YOUR DEATH WAS SO DEVASTATING,I GRIEVE TO THIS DAY. GOD HAS RECENTLY BLESSED ME BY ALLOWING ME TO BE IN CONTACT WITH AND MEET SOME OF, THE PEOPLE FROM THE 27TH INFANTRY WOLFHOUNDS. I JOINED THEIR SOCIETY TO KEEP YOUR MEMORY ALIVE.BUT MY MOST TREASURED MOMENT WAS TO MEET YOUR DAUGHTER FOR THE FIRST TIME. WE HAVE VOWED TO STAY CLOSE. YOU HAVE 2 ADORABLE GRANDSON'S AND EACH RESEMBLES YOU. THE OLDEST PROUDLY CARRIES YOUR NICKNAME "RIT". YOUR LEGACY LIVES ON. BUT YOU ARE SADLY MISSED. I AM PLANNING ON GOING TO A REUNION SOON TO SEE SOME OF THOSE I MET IN DC AND ALSO MEET SOME OF YOUR OTHER BUDDIES I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH. THIS IS HELPING TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH YOUR DEATH. I AM ALSO HOPING TO BE IN CONTACT WITH STANLEY AND ANGEL'S FAMILY AT SOME POINT. YOU EACH DIED A HERO, TRYING TO SAVE THE OTHER. PERHAPS YOU ARE THE ANGELS THAT I KNOW WATCH OVER ME. BUT ONE THING IS CERTAIN: YOU ARE IN A PLACE THAT KNOWS ONLY PEACE. GOD CALLED YOU HOME SO YOU WOULD SUFFER NO MORE. AND ONE DAY WHEN MY TIME HAS COME, I PRAY I WILL BE CARRIED ON THE WINGS OF AN ANGEL WITH RED HAIR. REST FOREVER IN PEACE IN PEACE WITH GOD....I LOVE YOU, DEAR RIT...TIL WE MEET AGAIN...KRISSY
