Fellow Marine

We likely didn't live more than 5 miles apart. We ended up in the 3rd Battalion 26th Marines same platoon and squad. He was killed hours, maybe minutes before we would meet. I always regretted that.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Charles Winfred Pool Jr, 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
