School buddy and fellow Marine

Rich and I went to Jr. and HS together.
Today I'll be going to a memorial service on the Battleship Massachusetts in which his name will be read and a single red rose will dropped into the water in his memory.
On a side note, I don't remember anyone in HS who could beat Rich in arm wrestling.
Semper fi ,

Remembering an American Hero

Dear LCPL Richard Henry Almeida, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter
