Remembering An American Hero

Dear PVT Norman William 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

Bill with the orphan boy

I knew Bill when we lived on Shingo Ave in Louisville, Ky. About 1955-57. We graduated from high school together in 1965. Currently I was thinking of him and was looking at this website. Seeing Bill with the young orphan boy is very gratifying. They look so happy and peaceful together. What makes this posting so special to me is my daughter and son-in-law are getting ready to fly to Vietnam to pick up an orphaned boy. It so happens he is just south of the orphange where this picture was taken. I will now think of Bill when I see my new grandson.
