Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Thomas Lee Carter, 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

Long Ago

During Tom's years at Annapolis and then Quantico, he was a good friend. We had a mutual friend living in DC, Miss Dani Demetri from whom regrettably I have lost contact along with Tom about 1962. He was one of the finest people I had ever known. His death was a beautiful sacrifice although a real loss to mankind. He would have gone on to do great things. Shortly after I learned of his death, I wrote my first "poem" in 2009 on Memorial Day.

I am the sand by the sea
Living blood falls on me
Soul comprehends soul
And eternity

I am the sand of the sea
Multitudes am I
Never alone
Warm tears wash over me

Hope died in youth
Blue eyed warrior he
Caught the shrapnel
Feeling alone

Eyes toward heaven
Last thoughts of family
Knowledge that someday
Yes, someday...

Close drew an angel,
love on his face
Like two birds they flew away
To God’s embrace

I am the sand by the sea
Living blood falls on me
Soul comprehends soul
And eternity

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Thomas Lee CARTER, USMC...who made the ultimate sacrifice!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
