So Long Ago...

Lorenzo and I were in a group of recruits from San Angelo, both enlistees and drafttees, headed to the Reception Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana in March of 1968 for Basic Training. I had not met him before but I knew some of his family.

Our group was divided into two Basic Training companies. Lorenzo was in the other company from mine, but I would visit friends in his company when training allowed and got to know him. He was a good-looking kid with a good sense of humor and was given the nickname "Romeo" because of his effect on ladies, so he claimed. A very likeable young man.

I had no word of Lorenzo after Basic. It was only after I was out of the Army and back in San Angelo that I ran into his older brother, George, who told me that Lorenzo had been killed.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Lorenzo Chapa Jr, 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
