Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Richard Lee Buckles, 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

Richard Buckles

Richard and I were kids that played together on Kentucky St. in Bakersfield. The years were 1945 to 1947. As I recall, his dad was Ronald Buckles and was an officer in the Army at the time. Richard is the only person I know of as an acquaintance that died in Vietnam. A memory from the time is when we were throwing dirt clods at each other and I threw one in his direction and he ducked. The clod broke their garage window. My defense when asked why I broke the window was "if he hadn't ducked, I wouldn't have hit the window".

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Richard Lee BUCKLES, USA...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keepo long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembli ng hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
