I went to elementary school with Major Zucker's son, Chris, in Tempe, AZ

My name is Walter Robinson and I went to elementary school with Major Zucker's son, Chris, in Tempe, AZ (Rural School). I have spent a great amount of time over the years reading about the Vietnam War and have never forgotten my friend, Chris. I remember Chris telling me stories about his father when we were little boys in elementary school. I have been to the Vietnam Nam memorial in Washington, DC, where I visited Major Zucker's name on the memorial. Chris, I can be reached at rob4092@cox.net if you ever receive this message. God bless Major Zucker and the sacrifice he made for me and my country!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Louis Claude Zucker, 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.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
