Visited You Today

Today Richard I visited you at the Wall That Heals. It was at the San Bruno Veterans Cemetery for several days. I remember serving with you in Charlie Company, 1/8th, 4th Infantry in 1969 before you moved to a transportation company. Word got back to us that you were killed by a mine while driving a deuce and a half. I'm not sure if this is correct but I want you to know that we mourned your passing and have not forgotten you.
Someday we will meet again Brother!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Richard Thomas Blake, 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

My Grief Now

Sarge, I know I caused you grief then, when we served in CRIP, but I grieved for your loss when I returned back from R&R. Rest in Peace and Honor my Brother. My grief is now, for you.
