Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Richard Ward Keithline, 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

It still hurts.

What can I say Keith? You were the best friend, comedian, and critic that a man could have. I think of you often after all these years. You are still affecting your friend's lives. You are well loved and mourned.

A friend

Keith, almost 35 years have passed and my memory of you is still strong. The world is too harsh and takes too easily.

Your Friends

Keith: You were well remembered today. Ben and I were together and we reminisced about you at length. We still think about you a lot and we still miss you even more -- still after 35 years. RIP

Keith

Keith was my best friend from about age 15 to when he died (at age 21, in February 1969). It hurts to think he stopped being my friend then, and I wonder what sort of friends we'd be today if he'd lived. I went to the Wall to find his name, and when I found it in that index-locator, I burst into tears. It was as if, on some reptile-brain level, I had expected NOT to find his name there: all a mistake! He's not dead! Of *course* not! Who? Keith? No! By then he'd been dead 15 years--I thought I had accepted it.
