Remembering An American Hero

Dear HN Gregory Paul Vercruysse, 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

Heartfelt Remembrance

Today marks the 4th year since your death.We had been friends for a short time while serving as the Corp men for B Co.26th marines,2nd platoon.We never imagined that one of us would die in combat.I will never forget finding you severely wounded on the battlefield.My hope was I would do my best to keep you alive and get you to a med Bat.for further care.I felt sure you would survive.
It wasn't until the next day that I earned of your death.That moment was beyond description.All the emotions of fear, anger, grief and guilt were overwhelming.We had been a team and now I was alone.We had lost 17 others and 23rd wounded that same day.I came to believe that I wouldn't survive my time in Nam.
After returning home I wanted to honor your life by doing something meaningful.I found that serving the veterans became my passion for the past 40+ years.Perhaps in an indirect way this helped me cope with your loss and saved my life.
Not many days go by without thinking of you and how thankful I am for our time together.
You will always be loved, honored and remembered. John (Doc) Kerri
