Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL John William Wilt 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

Memories

Though it has been nearly a half century, I remember well the difficult days we shared in the fall of 1964. You were determined to be a good Marine, and those who have survived long enough to rear a family and have grandchildren need to cherish the memory of one who did not.


We are taught that God has a plan for all of us; I hope that is so and that it somehow has made up for the brevity of your time here, and that you have been somehow rewarded for your devoted service. Perhaps, as the hymn has it, heaven's streets are guarded by United States Marines. If so, and I am lucky enough to get there, I will know where to look for you.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932
