Remembering An American Hero
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

You left this world 45 years today, but you will always be remembered for the wonderful person you were and how you enriched so many lives with your gentle spirit and kind heart. You were an inspiration and a joy for all who knew you, and you are sorely missed. Vichnaya Pamiyat, Vichnaya Pamiyat, Vichnaya Pamiyat.
