the uncle I never knew

My uncle "Dick" was killed one month after he came home and held me. I was born one month before he left for another tour in Vietnam. To this day it is very difficult for my father to talk about his older brother who he loved so dearly. He treasures all of the medals, flags and photos he has of him. We are truly so honored to be members of his family and are proud he served this country multiple times. God Bless you and I look forward to meeting you some day

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Richard E Bourne, 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
