Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Brian Edward Wolfe, 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

Visit to your grave site

Brian - On 3-28-12 I was visiting the grave of a friend, Don Weed when I saw your grave nearby. Like you, Don was assigned to the 3RD MARDIV in the Quang Tri Province, where he was KIA. Although I didn't know you, I took a picture of your grave stone, which I will keep as a rememberence of you. You will not be forgotten.

Take care & rest in peace, and thank you. Semper Fi.
