Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Ruben Garza Chavez, 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

Semper Fi

I never got to know Ruben since I was a kid when he was KIA. I grew up in Robstown and our families went to the same church. I knew that he was killed in Vietnam but not much more until the book We were Soldiers came out and he is listed in it. It was later made into a movie with Mel Gibson. Ruben was with C co. 2/7 and fought at LZ X-ray and was killed at LZ Albany during an ambush by the NVA that killed 150 of his brothers. C co. was hit the worst that day with 90% casualty rate. I have met some of the survivors of that battle and some of them were friends of Ruben and they told me that they remember him every day. Semper Fi Ruben

Your Example

I hope you are at rest knowing what an inspiration you have been to those of us from Robstown who recognize your name as a way to remember your sacrifice and not just the name of a street that runs through our town. You fulfilled your duty and became an example of bravery and character that most of us now a days would be hard pressed to display. Freedom is something most of us take for granted, even though it has has been paid for by brave men like you, men who paid the ultimate price so that others could rest easy and safe. You are not forgotten and never will be. You will forever be a hero to us.
