I never had privilege to meet but I can only Imagine how great he was

I was basically raised by Hurley Alvin's father (Lee Smith aka "Smitty") as he was my step-grandfather and took me in as his son literally the day I was born. Over the years I saw the pain my grandfather felt and expressed and I could never imagine how hard it must have been for him to experience the loss of his son and now I understand even more after having two sons of my own. Hurley Alvin is truly an American hero to sacrifice not only his life but the ones who loved him so much to the point that even to this day almost half a century after his death are we still thinking of him and trying to remember those who not only gave their lives but also hurt so much for many years due to that sacrifice. I was born 11/28/1977 which is a day after Hurley Alvin's birthday and my grandfather always told me he would have one bad day and then a great day in November and he treated me like I was his son so in many ways even without knowing Hurley or ever meeting him I feel like I can relate to the love he felt growing up so I can definitively say he was a very loved and a very admired person. I can only hope America can open our eyes one day and see the sacrifices these guys made like Hurley Alvin and the price their families who loved them had to deal with on a daily basis. American cannot ever be lost if we can remember the ones before us who made these sacrifices.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Hurley Alvin 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
