Thank You

Dear PFC Clifford Parsons, Thank you for your service as an Armor Reconnaissance Specialist with the 1st Cavalry. The 51st anniversary of the start of your tour is soon. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Holy Week and Passover. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

On July 17, 1970, an M113 armored personnel carrier from E Troop, 1st Cavalry, 11th Infantry Battalion was on a search and clear mission about 7½ miles northwest of Quang Ngai Airfield when it detonated a concealed 250 lb. bomb. The blast killed six soldiers and wounded nine. The lost crewmen included vehicle commander PFC Peter P. Auletti, driver PFC Stephen W. Barnes, gunners PFC Clifford E. Parsons Jr. and PFC Paul L. Salerno, and passengers PFC Michael E. Baum and PFC Louis L. Zitterguen. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Clifford E Parsons Jr, 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
