Remembering an American Hero

Dear 2LT Michael Patrick Quinn, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

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

Curt Carter

Mike & I served together

Mike & I went through OCS and ‘The Basic School’ at the same time and arrived in-country Dec 25, 1968. He and I were platoon commanders and in the bush together until he was killed 08291969 in the Hiep Duc Valley, An Hoa Basin. We had been in contact with large elements of an NVA division for several days and Mike went with the point squad to check out a trail. That tripped an ambush planned for the entire company. He prevented a very bad situation from becoming much worse. In the days prior, Mike distinguished himself in a number of ways. For his actions, he received the Bronze Star presented almost 40 years later by the Marine General (Captain at the time) who escorted him home.
