Remembered

Dear Sergeant 1st Class Ables,

I hate that you were killed the day after your 30th birthday, but then, dying so young is something that I wish did not happen.

REST IN PEACE.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SFC Elmer Robert Lee Ables 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
