22 April 1951 — Korea
Carter and his older brother Harry had joined the service about the same time. Both were sent to Korea. They were serving within a few miles of each other in different units. Harry went to visit his brother one day and found out that his brother had just been killed by a mortar round the day before. He was devastated! In February, Harry escourted the body home for burial. He never got over the loss and carried much grief and guilt throughout the rest of his life.
