Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Craig Edward 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, Sir

Curt Carter

45 YEARS PAST (1969-to date, 2014)

To Craig Yates and family . . . and ALL of his Army Brothers.

You were a special guy in AIT, 1969. We were close. Lord knows that in the downtime, we shared stories of our lives. I'd like your family to know that you spoke mostly of them and home, and that you impacted me as a good an honest man. You were an all-American boy. (I was a whole year older).

We trained together at Ft. Polk, and I learned of your death on June 27, 1969.
My life has never been the same. Maybe it can be now.
