Buddy

George, I remember talking to you less than a month before you were killed in Nam. You were praising me for my combat selection to Chief. I had known you for many years by then and you remembered me as a Seaman. May you have only Fair Winds and Following Seas and enjoy your place at the table of the Lord.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear BMC George Mulrooney, 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

THANKS - WE REMEMBER - September 24, 1988
George, a resident of Wyomissing, was a 21-year veteran of the Navy, having also served in World War II and Korea.
Born in New York City, George was serving his second tour in Vietnam as a patrol boat skipper.
In letters home, he wrote that he felt this was a foolish way to fight a war and that he disliked the patrol boats because they were so vulnerable.
George was killed during his 28th patrol in the Mekong Delta, when his boat struck a mine.
Surviving at the time were his wife, Elsie, and a son.
He was in Vietnam two months.
He was 43 years old.

From the Berks County Vietnam Memorial dedication booklet.
