Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL William Lindley Canter, 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

Always will be my Friend

I went through elementary, middle and high school with Bill, he was like the brother I never had. I will always remember sitting on the front porch and he and I practicing the violin. He was a wonderful friend and human being. He loved life and was proud to serve his country. I went to "The Wall" while in DC years ago and found my friend again. I will always have him in my heart as my brother. Thank you for being my big brother, I will always remember you.

The Good, They Die Young.

I attended Sarasota High School with Bill graduating in the same year 1968. Although we were not really friends, I remember Bill as a friendly, compassionate young man and an exceptional ball player. I recall attending his funeral in Sarasota while home on leave. In 1986 I had the occasion to stop at The Wall in Washington enroute to an assignment in Germany and viewed The Moving Wall in my current home of Lawton, OK in 1998. John G.
