A painful loss

I'll never forget you, my friend. You were such a great guy and it was a pleasure to serve with you. It also pains me that you were carrying my radio when you died and I couldn't be there with you. I was stuck at Gator healing from an injury and wished I could have been there for you.

I was with him when he passed!

I served with Rodger in the Americal Division in July of 1969. I was involved in the battle that resulted in Rodger's untimely death. He was a friend and fellow soldier whose death had a profound effect on me, even to this day.

Rodger may you continue to RIP, my friend!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Rodger Dennis McElhaney, 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
