Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Michael J Ciesielka 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

Regret

My husband was given Michael's casket flag by Michael's parents at his funeral. Since my husband has passed away I am trying to contact Michael's next of kin so I can return the flag to his family. My husband trined Michael and considered him a friend. He regretted that he could not teach Michael enough to come back home...

Phila. Officer Killed Leading Unit in Vietnam

A Northeast Philadelphia Army officer who proudly told his wife in a letter that his men's morale was high in spite of ragged appearance and worn trousers, has been killed in action in Vietnam, the Defense Department reported Thursday.
He had been in Vietnam only two weeks.
First Lt. Mike J. Ciesielka, 20, of 2927 Secane dr., who had planned to make the Army his career, died Monday while leading his 7th Cavalry Brigade platoon.
Lt. Ciesielka arrived in Vietnam on November 23. He joined the service in January, 1967, after graduation from Bensalem High School and a year at Pennsylvania State University. He trained at Fort Benning, Ga.
His wife, Patricia, received four letters from him Thursday, one of which commented that "if people only knew how it was over here, they'd do something about it." He added that the men of his new command were ragged, but their morale remained high.
He is also survived by his parents, Mike J Sr. and Marie, of 2568 June ave., Eddington, and two sisters, Barbara, 17, and Janice, 12.
