Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Gerald Lee Risinger, 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

Jerry, you will never be forgotten

You were in the 101st Airborne and killed by a rocket propelled grenade in one of the last major battles of the War at fire base Ripcord. You died a hero helping your fellow soldiers and fighting for your country. You walked point more than your share and were good at it and liked doing it to help protect your unit. Your death is chronicled in the book - Ripcord: Screaming Eagles Under Siege, Vietnam 1970 by Keith W. Nolan

You will never be forgotten... your little brother, Denny
