Thank You

Dear Cpl Joseph Ostifin, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Lent has begun. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

My love.

I was engaged to Joe when he was killed in Vietnam. I’m married now and have four wonderful children and have 11 grandchildren and a wonderful husband I’m sure he sent to me but his death left a lasting scare in my life. He never should have been there but the draft made him go. He had a heart condition. I miss him every day.

Today 8/6/2015

I am a classmate of Joe's from Hoover High School class of 1966. We are in Washington DC. Today, ironically we are visiting the VietNam Memorial with our 13 yr old grandson. He wants to attend the Air Force Academy, after high school graduation. We, will stand silently in front of the memorial and I will, with great honor, touch Joe's name on the wall and tell my grandson of my classmates ultimate sacrifice.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Joseph Lynn Ostifin, 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
