Captain Carter was shot and killed as he searched for a man who was threatening a woman with a gun. During the search the suspect jumped from behind some bushes and shot Captain Carter from approximately ten feet away. Captain Carter succumbed to his wounds three days later.

I am your grandniece and I will never forget your sacrifice. Three bothers served, including my grandfather (your brother) at the same time in the early 1900s and it means so much to me of their service. Thank you Uncle Sam - you are my hero.
