Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT George Anthony Capuano, 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

We were brothesr at Basic Training, Ft. Bliss, TX, 1967

George, we were together in Basic Training at Ft. Bliss, TX, back in '67.

I remember you fondly as a nice and quiet guy who never complained about the training, even when we were being pushed hard.

At ease, brother, as I salute you - an honor I wish I did not have. May God bless you Eternally.
