Ed Sanchez, USMC

I hate to get on here and disagree with a couple others who have posted here. To set the record straight on two different posts: Ed was not assigned to whatever fire team one person claims he was. Maybe a person of a similar name, but not the Ed Sanchez described and pictured here. For two, unless the grave of Ed was moved from where his remains were originally buried, the cemetery information is incorrect!
Ed is buried on a ranch west of Junction. Basically take I-10 West and follow signs to Ft. McKavett. Once you turn off I-10 to the north, the ranch is shortly down the road on the left. The ranch was gated at the paved road and a single story house was slightly to the right side of the road entering the property.
Ed, and I believe the other person was his grandfather are buried next to each other. That was 30 some years ago, may be others there now.
Ed came to VMO6 as a Huey mechanic in late 68. We had the old E-model Huey Gunships assigned to Quang Tri. I flew with Ed on either his first or second mission. Great guy, sharp, always smiling and intelligent. He was a young guy who for lack of better terms, HAD HIS ACT TOGETHER!
ED came to us I believe from a base in southern California. Didn't take long to know his pride and joy was his daughter, he shared her picture with me and many others. Shame he never had a chance to watch her grow up.
Ed was shot down in the area of the Ash Shau Valley (sp?).
RIP Buddy . . your memory lives on! Semper Fi..

To my uncle i never knew

I would like to thank you for everything you have done for our country and our family. The only thing i know of you is what my mom has told me and what I could find online and at the wall. Just as you have served this country I am currently serving, so maybe one day I will finally be able to meet you. God bless.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Edward Charles Sanchez, 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
