Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Harry Jay Coates 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

Harry was my friend.

I went through FAC training with Harry in New Mexico and was serving with him at Chu Lai Vietnam when he was killed. Harry was fun to be around. He liked to laugh and tell stories. I often think of him and the others that were lost.
