Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Billy Dean Nelson, 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

Never Forgotten

ALWAYS REMEMBERED

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From all your "Band of Nam Brothers"

Dear Billy,
My name is Katie, and I’m part of the Gridley High School Posting Project which we go and post remembrances for all of you who fought in the war. Our goal is to post a remembrance for everyone on here. I just thought that you would like to know that you are extremely courageous. You tried your best, and got us far. Thank you for all you have done for this country.
Sincerely,
