Thank You

Dear PFC Wendell Slavens, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. I researched you on your 74th birthday, happy birthday. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Winter will end soon, and Lent has begun. Time moves quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

childhood memory

I remember Wendell growing up in Oxford IN. He was always moving. He held the record in track for the Oxford blue devils, for either 100 yard or 50 yard dash. My grandmother had his trophy and ribbons the last time I saw them. He volunteered and was not drafted for the Vietnam conflict. No one knew what happened as to how he was KIA. His remains are in Kentucky where we visit when we can. He was rewarded the Purple Heart posthumously for his service. His nickname was muskrat and he was liked by everyone that he knew. My deepest respects to my uncle for the freedom I have and for the others who bravely gave their lives for their country. Some gave all ; All gave some.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Wendell Lee Slavens, 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

A great Student from a Long Long, time ago

Wendell, so sorry to have learned of your death 49 years ago but yet by friendly fire. My remembrance of you as your 5th grade teacher at Oxford has brought a sad feeling to me.
