Remembering that day

I was Harry's platoon leader. He was carrying a radio for me when he was killed. My 1st Sergeant was going to get him shipped out of the jungle and get him a job in the motor pool. This was one day that I will always hate. So sorry

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Harry Edward Underwood, 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

Who Was Harry Underwood?

Harry Underwood....even though I didn't know him, I can tell you a lot about him. Harry Underwood died at the age of 18. While most young men and women his age opposed the war, Harry Underwood did his duty and served his nation proudly. If he were alive today, he would be 49 years old. He probably would have a wife and several children, and perhaps a grandchild or two. He would have had the opportunity to enjoy the adventures of life, and probably would have had his share of hardache too. No, I didn't know Harry Underwood, but in a way I do know a lot about him. He wasn't a draft dodger, nor was he a campus protester. He was a young man who did his duty, and paid the ultimate price. To you Harry Underwood, and the thousands of others like you who died in Viet Nam, I salute your memory sir, and thank you for your sacrifice.
