If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone., who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.;

Rest in Peace Lieutenant

Gene and I went to Paradise High School and both graduated in 1959. We were pretty good friends in school and Explorer Scouts. I went to Viet Nam as an Army CIC agent in Sept 1965 and Gene followed shortly thereafter. We kept in touch by snail mail! I was due for an R&R and Gene had to take his plane out of country for routine maintenance. We decided to meet in Taipai, Taiwan. Had a great three days to cauousing.

Gene was doing what he always wanted to do. Yes Gene is a patriot hero.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Harold Eugene Knudsen Jr, 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
