Forever My Heart

Donny, that is our family name for you. Tear's fall whenever I think of you. Daddy's name sake; the tallest and most handsomest man; you would never know that your kindness, intelligence and sweet demeanor set a standard that few ever met. Life without you my darling cousin, well, it's just been hard. You were taken from us and we were left to pick up the pieces in sorrow and confusion. A ten year old doesn't understand the details, all I knew was I hated that war, that place that took you away from us, those turbulent times.
I understand now sweetheart and I thank you for your sacrifice. Daddy, Aunt Ree, Big Ma, Grand Daddy, Rod and your sweet mother Aunt Tess are with you now and all those boys who fought beside you.
We that are left, carry on. Until we meet again.
Always my heart.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Anthony Felix Washington, 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

The STUD

The STUD
Wash was always sharp, what we all refered to as 'STRIK'. He was kind of quiet and soft spoken (laid back) all the Ladies loved him, I kind of looked up to him. His ETS date was before mine and he "re-up'd" when I asked why he said " I was a shoe salemen, what do I have to go home to". We hit it off right away and his other buddy Jones who introduced us and the trio was born, Wash, Jones and Smith, that was the best year and half in the service, we did everything together, Thirty eight years before I found out Wash and it feels like it just happened. This is the only picture I have to send buddy, the one you wanted me to take on leave to show my sister what she was missing, your words, man I can't tell you how sorry I wasn't with you, know one thing buddy you will never be forgotten. "ALL THE WAY"
