Taps!

Boo was friend of my brother, Bobby. So I knew Boo well. Sunday dinner, or " no you can't go with us". It was the first time I heard Taps. I cried bitter tears. Still now

I thought of you today

Boo Smith; that's what we called you here in East St. Louis. When we lost you everyone spoke of it. You were our hero then. You are our hero now. I touch the name of your inscription on the Vietnam wall every time I visit D.C. Know that many love you. Know that many miss you. I know you have found "real" peace where you are. God Bless you Boo, and thank you for your service!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Bernard Edward Smith, 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
