My Dad
I was three years old when I lost my dad in Nam. I thank God that I know today the sacrifice he made for all of us and am no longer angry because of it. He died a Christian soldier, and left that legacy to us children in a song, I have since recorded. He will always be loved and missed by his three children and 6 grandchildren. We have each other and his sister and brother still to lean on. I know if he were here today he would be proud of who we are. I see in each of us bits and pieces of who our father was! and is today! We love you and miss you dad. Hope you know God sent us a great father to step in, and be there where you couldn't be. We also have a brother and sister who love you as we do, even though you weren't their father. We are blessed, what the enemy uses to try to destroy a family or nation, God uses to strengthen and will turn it around for the good! You are my hero! Your daughter Sarah Ledford

Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 2/26/14 - by Curt Carter
Dear SGT Norman Edward Adams, 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
