Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Roy Ransom Allen, 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

NEVER FORGOTTEN

You live on the hearts of those who love you, and you live on in the hearts of every American who appreciates your sacrifice for our country. I pray you are safe with the Lord, now, where there is only love and sweet peace. I'm sorry you had to leave so soon, but a light that shines twice as bright, burns half as long. Thank you for your service and sacrifice to our country.
