Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jack Smaso, 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

Remembrance

An excellent chess player with a tremendous sense of humor that died way too young.

From Tweety Bird's Brother

Dear Smaso,
My brother served with you and was with you on that last day. L Co. 3/5 remembers you. And PFC Mead Delroy Dickerson talked about you all of the time. He never forgot you or that day. He too has passed on.

NEVER FORGOTTEN

FOREVER REMEMBERED

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul....and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.



From your "Band of Vietnam Brothers"
