Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Charles Larry McMahan, 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

A Great American

We were but 54, they were 300-400. Gunfire raged for almost 6 hours. "Spooky" arrived and dropped his flares within 26 minutes of engagement. When daylight finally arrived, we were 46, they were beaten and gone. Nothing more could have been asked of these brave young men. An Army BG even said he was going to award all the Soldiers medal. SSG McMahan died of his wounds at the USAF hospital the next day. I'll never forget him or his last words to me.
