I Remember Eleanor

I served with Eleanor in Qui Nhon, Vietnam. We were not good friends, just fellow officers that would say hello and occasionally have a drink after work. She was gracious, hard-working, dedicated to her patients, and dare I say, quite pretty. When the accident happened and she and several other members of our unit were killed, the morale at the hospital was low for a long, long time. I will always remember Eleanor for her quiet professionalism. She was an excellent Army officer and nurse, and I am sure that many soldiers benefited greatly from her expert care. Rest in peace, Eleanor. Maybe we will meet again someday.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Eleanor Grace Alexander, Ma'am

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,

Curt Carter

IfI should die...remembrances for CAPT. Eleanor Grace ALEXANDER, ANC, USA...who died for our country

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
