From your first cousin

Ed- never knew your first name was Melton- I was in Washington for meeting and I am gLad to have found out- we never knew each other very well because of our age difference. I appreciate your service to our country and the ultimate sacrifice you made. I know my parents looked you up as soon as they got to heaven. I still have letter you sent them right after you got to Vietnam.

God bless,

Owen

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Melton 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
