Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Robert Earl Cole, 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

Bronze Star for Merit
For meritorious service in connection with military operations against an armed, hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam. Specialist Four Cole distinguished himself while serving as a Rifleman and Fire Team Leader with Company A, 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry during the period August 1967 to March 1968. Throughout his service with the company, he demonstrated an exceptionally high degree of professionalism, proficiency, and dedication to duty. As a rifleman, he always performed his job in an aggressive manner. He could always be depended upon as a point man or at a listening post at night. When Specialist Four Cole became a Fire Team Leader, he continued to perform in an enthusiastic manner. He also demonstrated a great talent for supervising the men in his Fire Team. Displaying outstanding leadership abilities, he was able to maintain the complete respect and confidence of both his subordinates and his superiors.

CACTI FOREVER

CACTI FOREVER
A Company, 2/35th, 3rd Brigade, 4th Inf Division.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
