To my mentor and transitional figure

To my mentor and transitional figure
Here's to you AL, it's been 50 years now I have lived with your memory in my heart. I remember sharing that bottle of Jack Daniels with you and Sam Orlando the night before you two shipped out for Viet Nam from the Naval Hospital in Oakland, knowing I was soon to follow. Little did we know or understand what was to come in just a few short months. The three of us on the same combat operation just a few miles apart assigned to different outfits. You and Sam killed just days and a few miles apart! Sam awarded the Navy Cross for Valor. I want you to know I've lived an honorable life in memory of you and Sam. I will be paying my respects at your final resting place in just a few days and check it off my bucket list. RIP Al

my brothers best friend

I walked into my brothers (Steve Young) bedroom and he was crying. Never saw that before in my bro, he had a broken heart. Allen would come over and hang around with him. Steve took it hard.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear HM3 Allen Linn Pierce, 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
