Charlie, could have been...

We met up in the Swiss Alps,w as it 1964? You and your Mom & Dad picked me up in Maienfeld. We drove to Lichtenstein for dinner. We had wine! We'd been on one real date in Charlotte,just days before my family moved to Geneva. It was kind of awkward,one of your friends had to come along,he had a driver's licence. We went to a movie,"Lolita". (X rated!). I wanted to hold your hand but you were pretty grumpy...When we met again I remembered my crush on you. It was a really fun evening with you and your parents. I had a photo of us, you had lifted me onto the stone supporting the gate to the old city. It doesn't matter that I can't find it. That's a Kodak in my mind. I remember you.

Forever young

When I look in the mirror I see an old man with failing health. It will be how others remember me. You, Charles, will always be remembered in your youth and for your love of life. You died doing what you wanted to do. With the whole world waiting for you to join your fellow Country Day School graduates in the halls of academia, business, and finance, you chose to be part of a brotherhood of warriors. Many cannot fathom your choice, but the brotherhood does. You earned respect with your choices, your service, and your sacrifice. You are always with me on Memorial Day. Salute !

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Charles R Willard Jr, 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
