Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCDR Roger Hugh Mullins, 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

Was with my Grandpa Bill at the time.

Roger went down with my Grandpa Bill whom I never got to meet (My dad was 13 at the time their plane went down) we never heard much about their plane crash except from our Oregon Relatives and as adults. Nanna, (Clara Louise Newton) and Dad, (William Wallace Newton III) never much talked about it.

If I should die...remembrances for LCDR Roger Hugh MULLINS, USN...who made the ultimate sacrifice!!!

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.
