In Remembrance of Charlie Beard

At the memorial to Coloradans who have fallen in combat is the name Charlie Beard. He was a football star at South High School in Denver. He was killed by friendly fire in Vietnam on November 21, 1968, In the stands at South High football games, there hung the Confederate flag because South was 'the Rebels' even though that was the flag of the nation whose sole reason for being was to continue the enslavement of his ancestors. There are many heroes. Charlie Beard had no choice, in effect, of whether or not he went into the Army. I rank Charlie Beard as a hero. His family has dealt with his loss for almost fifty years. Now South High has changed to 'the Gargoyles.' That is as it should be, but the change was made decades after it should have been.
I want to express my gratitude and admiration to Charlie Beard and my condolences to his family.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PVT Charles Ray Beard, 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

To Put A Face With A Name

To Put A Face With A Name
Dear Charles, to honor your memory and the sacrifice you made for your country I want to make sure your photo will be displayed on your birthday each and every year when the Education Center is completed, so it is with great pride and humility that I post this remembrance and picture of you. You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war 45 years ago. God Bless You, Charles, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.
