Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Refugio Canales, 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

I will never forget!!

I will never forget you Tio Cuco , I was only 10 years old when you were taken from us. I remember writing to you and telling you that I wanted to grow up just like you and serve my country and that you were my Hero. You told me serving our country was not a bad thing but as far as being my Hero that my Dad deserves that title, you were right but nobody said I couldn't have more than one Hero. Well I grew up and I did serve my country in the US Marine Corp. I'll be 55 years old next month I will never forget you Tio Cuco. Thank You for your sacrifice.

For the family

To his family:

We served together in A Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry of the 1st Cavalry Division, call sign, Lean Apache. It was an honor to have done so. The guys are now getting together for reunions and communicate by email. We have been in contact with a number of family members of those who did not return. If you have questions or would like to contact the guys who served with him please send me an email at [email protected]. I will be more than happy to help in any way I can and I will forward your communication to the group.

I know this may sound somewhat sterile or distant. That is not my intention. I really do not know what to say to you. But if I or the guys are able to answer questions or provide insights that will be helpful to you, we want to do that. I assure you that we all share your grief. Our hearts go out to you. We will always do all we can for the families. We owe it to you.
