Remembering An American Hero

Dear SFC D J Kelsey, 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

Not forgotten

I was in Co D 1/506 Infantry Camp Evans and remember SFC Kelsey who was always smiling and respectful to all of us. I was sitting along a trail reading a letter from back home and here comes Kelseys platoon taking point. I did not know Johnson very well but as he passed me along the trail with Kelsey in front of him. I asked him how R&R was in Hawaii and he answered with a big smile, but my memory does not allow me what he said but it had to be something like great. A few minutes later I heard rifle fire and we humped to the location and found Kelsey and Johnson had been killed. None of us can forget that terrible year.
