Remembered

I was born in Grand Haven a little over 5 years before you gave all. The youngest of 7, a Tom myself. You were born 2 days after my fathers 28th birthday, himself a WW2 vet. He worked for the newspaper there, probably reporting your birth if you were born there. You likely played ball and or went to school with some of my siblings. I’m almost 57 now. A former Army Sp/4 myself ( peacetime only ) a soon to retire cop. I review this site often & noticed the hometown. I’ve had a blessed long life thanks to your sacrifice & that of your brother & sister soldiers. Enjoy the eternal peace you so richly deserve. Felt led to post these similarities . I gave very little- you gave all. Thank you.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Richard Thomas Wilkinson, 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
