MY BROTHER - MY HERO

“We’re very proud of him and I think he (served voluntarily) because he loved his country.”
“But he wanted to go to the Marines,” Lyles said “It was a shock to everybody. I think he felt like he was going to get drafted, for some reason.”

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Fred Buffington, 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
