Remembering a Fallen Hero

During my last trip to Washington I went to The Wall. It wan't my first time. I realized I has never researched the list to see if any Sumrall soldier has died in Vietnam. You can imagine the excitement, pride, and saddness I felt when I found Roger Dale Sumrall on the wall. Of the 58,000+ names on the wall, Roger is the only Sumrall to be enshrined in eternal glory on The Wall. I never knew Roger in this life, even though we were likley less than 25 miles apart. I am sure he is a relative (I am from Sumrall, Mississippi) and I would like to find that connection. I am attaching photos of me pointing out his name on The Wall. My honor and respect is given to Roger and his family who still loves and mourns him. He paid the ultimate sacrifice. God grant him rest in everlasting glory.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Mr. Roger D Sumrall, 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
