REMEMBRANCES

My wonderful brother, Ltn. Lewis Curtis Wuestenberg

I just found this website and it meant so much to see the remembrances posted here.My brother was four years older than me and I thought he hung the moon!I looked up to him so much and if he gave me advice or direction you could consider it done. I was 18 when he died and life has not been the same since. I can see why he could be a leader because he had a quiet confidence that inspired others. I would have followed him into battle for sure. It has taken many years to talk about those terrible years when people so viiified our soldiers that we just were quiet about it all.I look forward to being united with him one day in heaven where their will be no tears and we rejoice in the presence of God. I wish I could talk to anyone who may have served with him in the army. I would welcome any contact!

Never Forget

Dearest Curt, Today marks 50 years since we lost you. So much time has passed yet your light still burns bright in my heart. I will never forget the beautiful young man that I knew nor will I forget your courage and the supreme sacrifice you made for us all. Never Ever.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Lewis Curtis Wuestenberg, 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

CLASS OF '64--GHS

I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL WITH CURT. WE HAD SEVERAL CLASSES TOGETHER. I KNEW HIM--HE KNEW ME---BUT WE DIDN'T RUN WITH THE SAME FRIENDS. HE WAS A NICE AND DECENT YOUNG MAN. A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO--A NAME "JUMPED" OUT OF THE GREENVILLE PHONE BOOK. IT WAS A WUESTENBERG. I THOUGHT "SURE NOT"--COULD THIS BE HIS PARENTS?? I CALLED AND TALKED TO A MRS.WUESTENBERG. CURT WAS HER SON. SHE SEEMED SO APPRECIATIVE THAT I TOOK THE TIME TO CALL HER. I THANK CURT AND THE MANY, MANY THOUSANDS THAT GAVE THEIR LIFE IN VIET NAM. I THANK ALL VETERANS FOR KEEPING THIS A SAFE COUNTRY. AGAIN--THANKS CURT.
STEVE GILBERT-CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, FORMERLY OF G'VILLE,S.C.
