Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. The remembrance from your sister Shirley is touching and reflects her admiration and respect for you as well as the anguish experienced by so many families that lost loved ones in this war. As long as you are remembered you will always be with us….

Thanks for your service, cousin.

Curtis was my mom's 3rd cousin. I've only recently learned of him, through genealogy. I've never met anyone in his branch of the family, but am proud to have been even distantly related to him. My mom's youngest brother was in Vietnam and was also shot in an "accidental" method. Although he was "missing" for several weeks in various foreign hospitals, he ultimately survived and came home. My deepest sympathies to Curtis' family & friends. Thanks for your service, Curtis. R.I.P.
