Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Henry Valenzuela Jr, 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

Family

My grandparents still have a picture of Henry hanging in their home. I remember as a kid when my grandmother took me to the grave site and I was thinking how much of a hero he was for fighting for our country. Henry's mother and my grandmother are sisters (Henry is my 2nd cousin). In 2001 I had the opportunity to visit Henry's name at the wall and I will always cherish that moment. Heroes may be gone, but they are never forgotten.
