It was so long ago...

We were both members of F Company, 75th Rangers. My job was radio relay. I happened to be in Tay Ninh when Harjo's team was hit. As I stood between two of our wounded who were being treated and prepped for the trip to Japan, over and over they praised Harjo. They spoke about how though seriously wounded he continued to lay down fire to protect them. I had been with the company since July, about four months before Harjo's death, and do not remember meeting him. However, I will never, never forget the tribute those two wounded comrade's paid him.
 
 
Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 11/18/15 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
 
Dear SP4 Kenneth Dewayne Harjo, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

This is hard to write for someone you knew and loved, I recall the days when we were young at church running around the grounds, swimming in ponds, playing ball, even tho we were cousins we were brought up as brothers, miss you.

Mvto, cibon!
The war went on for, what seemed like, so long. I came up through school wondering when my turn to go would come. My own older two brothers answered the call. One of them came back with a Purple Heart,one kidney, and one and half lungs. As one of the four from our small hometown who gave all, along with the other 58,000, Thank You (Mvto)! Because of your sacrifice, I did later serve in a peacetime Army, now enjoying grandkids and gray hair. You made that possible, Cibon (boy). You are remembered!

Angel Day
On this your angel day I want you to know that you are a blessing to a countless number of people past, present, and future. And through your selfless service and courageous deeds your efforts have and will have an influence on many generations. And with all the good you did and the ultimate sacrifice you paid you truly are OUR HERO and we thank God that you lived.

FREEDOM
by Father Denis Edward O'Brien, USMC

It is the soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us Freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us the Freedom to demonstrate

It is the soldier, who serves beneath the Flag,
Who salutes the Flag,

Whose coffin is draped by the Flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the Flag,

It is the soldier, not the politician,
Who has given his blood, his body, his life,
Who has given us these FREEDOMS!

Kenneth Dewayne Harjo
Kenneth, you were just a boy when you left for Viet Nam..On the day you made the ultimate sacrifice I'm sure you had become a man in every way. You were denied living many years and enjoying the things we take for granted. You will never be forgotten.

Everyone on the Wall should have a remembrance....

In gratitude for your ultimate sacrifice....I honor your memory today, on the anniversary of the country's great loss of Kenneth Dewayne Harjo on the foreign soil of Viet Nam. I'm sure your family and friends are very proud of you, miss you dearly and still feel the pain of their loss.

in peace always
