Remembering An American Hero
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

The Vietnam war is a great war to learn about as a kid because it shows us how to act as an individual under certain circumstances. Circumstances like survival, death and being drafted to the war. Daniel Owen Abernathy is a hero in my mind because as a senior and being in the war to fight for his independence and ours, it shows a lot of character and takes a lot of heart and dedication.
