Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT Henry Alverson Ledford, 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

A fine College roommate a great American

"I can't sit here and watch this war anymore without taking some action. I won't sit here and watch while my American buddies are being killed every day." These were the words he told me as he left Maryville College his junior year and joined the Marines for action in Vietnam. He shared my room there at Maryville College, made my student life exciting with his appreciation for life and living it to the fullest. He wrote me upon graduation from Officer Basic School that he had received orders for Vietnam and was anxious to serve America and fight for the freedom of the Vietnamese. Henry was truly a great patriot because he believed in America, it values, and appreciation for freedom. He had a strong moral compass believing in God and served his life as a Christian. He married a lovely girl, Robin was her name, and had wonderful parents. His life was a inspiration to me for it reinforced my faith in America. He gave the ultimate sacrifice while on a body recovery mission, 5 July, 1968. Henry I salute you and will remember you always. God Bless You!
