Remembering your visit to me at ChuLai

Just thinking about you over Memorial Day. How you made up an excuse to drop in and see your nephew at ChuLai on your way back from a mission, "Engine vibrations". You flew your A1E right up to my ordinance tent. Talk about a surprise. We had time for a few beers and then you flew off. I went down to Pleiku to visit your squadron. They missed you and we all do.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Charles Edward Rogers, 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
