48 years ago

It will soon be 48 years since we lost you. I can still see your smile as you turned just before boarding the plane in Portland, Oregon. Your extended
family has not forgotten you as we let the younger generations know about
the war. I have a folder ready to leave my 2 daughter and 2 grandchildren
so they will better understand. Rod Adams has located me several years
ago and that has been so special to me. His comment at the time " Is this
the sister that Howard loved so much " still touches me. Some day I hope
to see Rod again in person as I plan to take my grandkids to Washington
DC to see the Memorial Wall that is so much a part of our history. I am
retired now but still send $5 monthly to help with the Education Center and I have been locating some of the local (Texas) Veterans whose pictures are still needed for the important work of the Education Center. In my mind your are
with our mom and dad and my son. I love you.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Howard David Akehurst, 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
