Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC William Smyly Williams 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, Sir

Curt Carter

He was gone my 4th day of combat, and he saved my life.

Will saved our lives, and he was gone. Will had become squad leader of 2nd squad, 1st Platoon C Co. 1/502 101st my 2nd day in combat as a new guy. Two days later, we were ordered to assault a village and he put Ford, Carter & me in the back of the formation because we were not experienced yet. Ford, Carter & I were the only survivors that day because we were caught a cross fire in the open of a known NVA occupied village, and none of us had a chance. For 25 years this memory was locked away in my mind. It came back to me when reading names on the Wall around Nagy, the only name I could remember. I found myself in tears as I recognized name after name from 3/15/68 the day this disaster occured.

Bless you for saving my life on that day.

Keith Askin, survivor, 101st C. Co 1/502 3/68 to 5/69
