Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Bernard Fredrick Ritchie, 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

No Greater Sacrifice

I am a Gridley High School student from Gridley, IL. I am doing a history project and I would like to take a moment to thank you for all the sacrifices you made. You left many things behind as you served your country. But, the most important sacrifice you made was your life. There is no greater sacrifice than giving your life for others. You deserve to be honored forever. Thank you and God Bless! Sincerely, Melissa Kaeb
