I was with you on that night of 2/3/66

Richard thought of you many times over the last 49 years. We were cherries .Wayne leathers. Ray Sidebottom and myself were on the rear guard , as you know we set up at the bottom of hill 52 in a cemetery your rifle jammed. I have wondered all these years if you switched weapons with me after my rifle lammed during the firefight before we got to hill 52.? Sgt Laguana just passed March 5th. Hope you meet up with him. We took a lot of them out in your name. Won't ever forget you .Sutor

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Richard Clive Youngbear, 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
