Remembering a hero

I think of Ed Miles often. Our families were close friends and we referred to him as Eddie. Time stopped when he was hit in Vietnam, laughing and good times stopped. I had the honor of taking him home from Fort Devon, Mass. He is still with me. Jay G.

Sailing buddy

A wonderful memory I have of sailing his Dad’s “Lightning” during a race on Manhasset Bay. I distinctly remember us almost capsizing when we attempting to set the spinnacker. We had a wonderful time that particular summer. I am disappointed that we lost contact, especially since I now realize we were both “in country” Vietnam, at the same time. It is my loss!

Ed, forgive me for not being there for you! I also have become very anti-war unless absolutely necessary.

Thank you for having been my friend! I a proud to have known you.

A note from your son...

A note from your son...
Thinking of you and missing you Dad...My father was a remarkable man, not only for what he did during the Vietnam War but what he did after the war. I hope to some day live up to even a little bit of his achievements and what type of person he was. He never complained about his injuries, yet was in constant pain, he never complained about having to walk up stairs because there was no handicap accessible elevator or ramp, he never felt sorry for himself or asked for pity, he never once complained to me about how hard it must have been on a daily basis doing something as simple and mundane as going grocery shopping. His accomplishments after the War were legendary and he will forever be remembered for those that he achieved.
I was deployed to Afghanistan with the US Army after he passed in 2004. But I know he was looking down on me while I was there, and would have been proud of the work I did there trying to help the people of Afghanistan and protect them against tyranny and corruption, defending the woman and allowing them to go to school and sit equally with their male counterparts. I only wish I could talk to him again and thank him for everything that he did for us and the world. I write this note in the hopes he can somehow read my words...
I miss you Dad...R.I.P. Captain Edward F. Miles

Love always,

Daniel

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPT Edward Francis Miles, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
