Gone but not forgotten

I remember you at Keith Academy in Lowell. You were 2 classes ahead of me. Your brother Armand was a good friend of mine. I heard you were missing in action while at Merrimack College. I chose the Army when it was time and was honorably discharged as a 1Lt in 1972. I do think of you often and the sacrifice you made. As a former Tewksbury resident, and Keith Academy graduate, and a veteran, I will not forget.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear Captain Richard Girard Morin, sir


As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Richard Girard MORIN, USMC...who died for our country!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
