LEFT FOR ALBERT ALLEN PETERSON
POSTED ON 4.17.2018

For HN Albert Allen PETERSON, USN...anorther of Emporium's bravest of heroes, who gave his all!!

He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
He was our defender, and he kept us free!
He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
He loved us so, and we should know.
For we loved him so.
Hospitalman Peterson, you were the very essence of DUTY!...HONOR!...and COUNTRY! You had been there and done that in Vietnam, as a medical corpsman, saving many lives of Marines and sailors and allied soldiers!
You were one brave man who did brave deeds for our America! You helped Marines as they fought for the right without question or pause as you did! Your name and fame are the BIRTHRIGHT of EVERY American citizen! In your youth and strength...your love and loyalty...you had given all that mortality can give to defend liberty everywhere! Emporium is very proud of you! You sacrificed your life so that freedom and justice may live! You had lived up to the code of conduct and chivalry of those who guard this beloved land!...an ideal SO NOBLE that it arouses in all of us a sense of pride, and yet, of humility! I strongly and honestly believe that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I greatly and so immensely admire as one of my three top favorite songbirds of all time, the other two being Walton-on-Thames's own Julie Andrews, England's musical queen, and London's own Dusty Springfield, another thrush from England, would be very proud of your service to America and the sacrifices you made to keep our country and us free! Well done, Sailor! Be thou at peace. FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS!

Hometown friend

Al was couple years older then me and in my sister's class, whereas I was in the same class as his brother growing up in small mountain town in western Pa where everyone knew each other.

He joined the Navy out of high school and became a Corpsman protecting brothers of mind in the Marine Corps. He gave up his life caring for his wounded Marines during battle and no words can ever be written or expressed in how much he meant to everyone.

Semper fi Al and I made it back having done three tours thanks to corpsman like you who had my back.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear HN Albert Allen Peterson, 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
