Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Robert Gene Pinkston, 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

"Pinky," as he was called, was a loving father and husband. He enjoyed fishing, camping, playing cards, and flying kites with his children, Tony and Christina. They were ten and six when he left us. Our last memory of him was in February 1968 when he was leaving Fort Hood to return to Vietnam. The zipper on his khakis was stuck and he had to use plyers to pull it up. I've often thought of what a hassle that must have been for him on his trip! Less than a month later, he was reported missing in action. Ten days after that, we received confirmation that he had been shot while on guard duty. He left us much too young at the age of 35. I wish he could have seen his children grow up. He would have been so proud of them.
