Never Forgotten

You were a very special person, a great soldier but most of all, you were my big brother. I remember your laugh and your wonderful sense of humor, your humility and your resilience. I loved who you were and especially who you were to me. You could never and will never be forgotten. I am looking forward to seeing you again one day.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP5 Harry E Bates, 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
