Really nice guy

I knew Kenny in high school. He wss a year ahead of me. He was very sweet and also handsome. The last time I talked with him he gave my friend Patty Mulhollen and I a ride in his car. He told me he was leaving soon for the service. I believe he said the following week. Whenever I am in DC I stop by his name on The
Wall out of respect. My condolences to his family.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Kenneth Francis Ybarra, 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

To My First Childhood Love at Saint Anthony's in Gardena, CA

I often think of Kenny and what a genuinely nice person he was. I really only "knew" him as a child as we met when we were in the first grade at Saint Anthony's in Gardena. Such a loss and a waste of a very special and good person. He was my first love and will always have a place in my heart and I have great sympathy for his parents for losing their child, especially since he really was only a child when he lost his life. We went to the same high school but were only friends to speak to each other. He came to my house to say goodbye before he left for Vietman and that will always mean a lot to me.
