"To the family and friends of Curtis Mehrer, I would first like to thank you for raising such a wonderful, caring, and patriotic man. My brother, Keith Smette, was also killed in Iraq. My current job is as an instructor for units that are doing premobilization training in North Dakota. I take is seriously. One way for soldiers to get a good understanding of the importance of the training is by remembering those who have given the ultimate sacrafice. I would like for you to email me some stories about Curtis. I did not have the privledge to meet him but would love to share bits and pieces about him so that those who deploy in the future will have his memory in their heads and remember why, and who, we are fighting for. My email address is robert.smette@us.army.mil Thank you so much and God Bless!"
