Manhattan College Buddy

I went to Manhattan College with Brian and I never met a more gracious understanding person than him. We lost a great one. When I go to the walk-in DC and see his name, it just crushes me. He and we got cheated. Why?

honoring you....

There is a place
Not far from here
Where spirits walk
And heroes live
And honor still resides.

It is a wall
With names inscribed
Of those who served
When they were asked...
The brothers of my youth.

I go there still
To walk and think
About my life,
And what I've done since
And things that might have been.

There is a debt
I can't repay
Too many lives were spent.
And one man's life cannot suffice
To make their deaths worthwhile.

But there is hope
In the memory
Of those we leave behind
Who know the price that freedom brings
Who can carry on in kind.

I send you now
To touch a name
So the vision can be passed
Remember there is honor still
It is for you to see it lasts.

They are not dead
And have a wish
As all old soldiers do
The reflection you see before you now
Is their wish to live in you.

R.I.P. Cousin

Brian was my cousin, although we probably only met once or twice due to the age and distance between us. His Dad, my great uncle "Paddy" was the brother of my Grandmother Mary Theresa McCarthy Sullivan of Harvard Sq and later Belmont MA. Brian's mom Marie was a hoot. I have never forgotten his sacrifice.

Thank You

Dear Sp5 Brian McCarthy, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. I researched you on the 52nd anniversary of the start of your tour. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Time passes quickly, but our world needs help. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Brian Francis McCarthy, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
