Remembering an American Hero

Dear SSGT Lawrence Phillips, 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, for those who love you, and for the Sgt's son.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter (son of Sgt. Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, died February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)

BUDDY

BUDDY -- I WAS HONORED TO SERVE WITH PHIL DURING HIS FIRST TERM OF SERVICE IN VIETNAM (1966-1967). WE BECAME "ARMY BUDDIES" AND I TRIED TO CONVINCE HIM NOT TO VOLUNTEER FOR HIS SECOND TOUR (1967-1968). I HAVE OFTEN THOUGHT OF THE TERM "ARMY BUDDY" SINCE PHILS DEATH AND TO ME IT'S MUCH GREATER THAN BEING A "FRIEND". I KNOW PHIL WOULD HAVE DIED TO SAVE MY LIFE WITHOUT THOUGHT, AND I AM AM CERTAIN I WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING TO SAVE HIM AS "BUDDIES" WOULD. I KNOW PHIL SERVED THREE AND POSSIBLY FOUR TOURS IN VIETNAM. AFTER I GOT OUT OF THE ARMY (NOV 1997) WE WROTE SEVERAL YEARS BUT LATER LOST TOUCH. PHIL'S WIFE FOUND A LETTER I HAD WRITTEN ALONG WITH A PICTURE OF MY FIRST DAUGHTER IN HIS BELONGINGS AND INFORMED ME OF HIS DEATH. I OFTEN WONDER HOW THEIR LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN HAD I CONVINCED PHIL TO LEAVE THE MILITARY BEFORE HIS THIRD OR FORTH TOUR. SURELY, GOD HAS FOUND A PLACE IN HEAVEN FOR A PROUD SOLDIER THAT VOLUNTEERED SO MANY TIMES TO GIVE THE SUPREME SACRIFICE FOR HIS COUNTRY. I WOULD APPRECIATE HEARING FROM PHIL'S FAMILY AND FRIENDS ANYTIME...
