Missing You

Yet another year has passed and so much I have to tell you since my last visit. I am lonely without you; I think of your smiling face, gentle voice and the life we could have had. Again I will visit the wall and leave my remembrance for you...I know you are with me always.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PVT James Ray Young, 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

Correction

In my previous remembrance I stated that I was told that there were no survivors but now I know that that was before all the facts were known. Jim's Recon Team (Sky Merchant) had:
4- KIA
2 -WIA
1 -MIA (body not recovered)
1 -miraculously unwounded survivor.
I had to straighten this out because this is not the place for inaccuracies. SEMPER FI

So Young

You always were handsome...even in school. I still have the pictures; almost worn to a frazzle for holding them. I miss those days as I miss you
