Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Ronald Robert Martin, 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

Rest In Peace My Friend

We were together on that fateful day on the Huey that landed under heavy enemy fire that took your life. As a friend, I stayed by your side all the way back to Erie.


May you rest in peace my friend.
