Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 8/23/16 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
Dear SP5 Frederick Wayne Taylor, 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
That one person in your life.

So long ago I knew you. What a wonderful person. So kind and good. I will never forget you. How you loved your family, your car, and you small hometown. You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace and know how much you were loved by so many. I truly wish you could have lived out your life.
Thank you

I did not know Butch, as he passed away before I was born. He was the brother of my step-father, Kenny Taylor. The included picture comes from his 1962 Matamoras High School senior yearbook.

We lost touch after we graduated from high school and I moved to Texas and you and your parents moved away from Xenia. You were one of my two best buddies. Fred, Tom, and Ron - always together. We always wondered what happened to you. I went back to Xenia in 1976 and looked up old friends - including your high school girlfriend Carol and Tom, the rest of our trio - to see if they knew where you went. I had a deep suspicion, but don't think I really wanted to know. Sometime about 1996 I found an Internet list of those who died in Viet Nam and my suspicion was realized. 25 years later I cried for you as I am now as I post this remembrance. A couple years ago, I looked up your name in records at the wonderful memorial in Angel Fire, New Mexico, to verify what I had read on the Internet. I can see your smiling face and hear your cheerful voice as I type. I miss you and will think of you always. Your friend, Ron Allison

I visited your grave today. I still can't believe you died in that horible war. You were only 23 years old.You were a great person and the world lost a very good man. I just wish you could have lived out your life. You deserved so much. Butch, I will always remember you.
