Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Gordon Scott Wise, 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

Remembered

Gordon S. Wise of Minneapolis, MN, in a hammock, probably at one of the pacification villes in 1970. (KIA Aug 1970). He dictated this last letter to his family from his hospital bed in Chu Lai, Vietnam, August 11, 1970. He died two days later. Assumed you've heard what happened to me...To make matters short, I was walking point for my platoon on the 6th of August somewhere around 10 in the morning. I hit a booby trap. It was a pressure release type mine, therefore it was easily camouflaged and rough to spot. I lost most of my left leg and my left hand... I'll write when I have the chance. Gordon S. Wise, Letters From Vietnam (Minneapolis: Mr. and Mrs. G.V.Wise, 1971), p. 125.
