My Daddy's Friend

Dear Billy, I never had opportunity to meet you as you gave your life when I was a year old. My Daddy, Dan Johnson said you were his best friend growing up and that your death impacted him greatly. Thank you for your service. Much love to your family if they ever see this.

A friend

He was my best friend while serving with "Charlie" company 1st Bn 9th Marines 3rd platoon. We shared times together and he was a super guy. I was deeply saddened upon hearing he died in Vietnam. I left in July prior to leaving for Khe Sanh because of an eye disease.

Everyday he was appreciative of life and how much it meant to him. He taught me to take everyday as a gift.

We went into every battle together and I always leaned on him because he was mature and had his act together.

I miss you buddy and I always ask God why he took you instead of me.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL William Frank Pelton, 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
