Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Bruce Edgar Yates, 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

A Good Friend

I will always remember my dear friends Bentley Hill and Bruce with their guitars singing "Barnacle Bill the Sailor" down at Fort Hood when all was right with the world.

Bruce E. Yates

It has been 42 years since I last seen Bruce. We were with the 11th Cav at Ft Meade MD. We were on the football team that the 1st Sq. put together.

I found out about Bruces death in December of 1966 by another friend Bill Hyatt, whom I still have contact with, a good friend. It took me untill March of this year to find out where his remains are buried, and my wife and I made a trip to the Bay Area to make our first visit. I think about him and the antics that we pulled while at Fort Knox and Fort Meade, I really wish he were here, but it isn't to be. Rest easy ol friend, Bill and I will have a drink or two in rememberence of you.
