Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

Friend of Pete 1969
I never forgot
I new Pete and spent many weekend at his home from West Point, Pete showed me the only thing that the service sent to the family which was in a dresser. His brother Richard was killed and we could only look at a flag, This was my first time to see and feel the pain as a result from this crazy war as it inpacted the family. Late 69 I went to Nam And thank God Pete went to Korea. That was the last time I saw or heard from him. Pete my freind when I go to the wall I trace Richies name along with a few other brothewrs and place them in my 1948 willys jeep that Is dedicated to all who served our country John D. Burd

Knew his brother Peter
17 Yeomans Road
Columbia, CT 06237 USA
On this day April 25, I was just checking out a web site to prepare my students for Memorial day, (I teach grade 6 in Hartford, CT). I decided to go the WALL and look up Richard because I use to go out with his brother Peter, and I remember so clearly when we got the news that he was killed. I was a junior in high school and our classmates and staff were devastated that one of ours' was a fallen hero. I did not know this date, April 25 was Richard's birthday. But I do know everything happens for a reason. Maybe Richard, your spirit somehow connected to me on this day and here I am, and I say to you "you are not forgotten, hero." When I go home today I will tell my husband of this revelation and I will remind him of how proud I am of his service to our Country, when he served in Vietnam.

Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 9/20/13 - by Curt Carter
Dear PFC Richard P Caputo, 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
