Thank You

Dear Cpl Nelson Van Gundy, Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. POW/MIA Recognition Day just passed. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Semper Fidelis Marine!

The almost two years we served together are many years in the past but still very fresh in my memory. You were a damn fine Marine and an even better human being. Bravo Zulu Marine! RIP

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Nelson Earl Van Gundy, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
