Remembering an American Hero
Dear PFC Arthur Jerome Baylor, 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, for those who love you, and for the Sgt's son.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
Curt Carter (son of Sgt. Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, died February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
Baylor was shot while tending to the wounded during an intense fire fight. He was brave. Bullets were hitting all around and yet he did his job, exposing himself to help others. He cared about the men he treated, and did a good job of keeping us healthy. He will never be forgotten.
