Remembering an American Hero

Dear American Hero,

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 (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)

Matthew Amaral Dies In Vietnam. That was the headline

He was born in Beverly, Massachusetts on November 29, 1946, the son of Matthew P. and Janet (Perry) Amaral, Jr.

He graduated from Gloucester High School in 1965. He played drums for a group called Bob and The Terriers and played shortstop in Little League and Babe Ruth Leagues.

At the time of his death, he was engaged to be married to Yvette Roderick of Eatontown, New Jersey.

He had been in Viet Nam about six months and was a crew chief on a helicopter, part of the 240th AHC. Matthew died 15 days after his 21st Birthday.

He is buried in Wesleyan Cemetery, Gloucester, Mass.

God rest your soul, Matthew.
