Born November 20, 1917 at Mansonville, Quebec, Canada, Corporal Myron E. Carter spent most
of his boyhood inNorth Troy. An excellent student, and an outstanding athlete, he was popular and well-liked by all. Before enlisting in the army, he was employed by the Blair Veneer Company, where he is remembered as a skillful and hard worker. Corporal Carter was known by his host of friends as 'Stick' , and his was indeed a most pleasing personality, and in his short lifetime he won for himelf a host of friends, who remember him fondly.
An outstanding young man in every respect, he made the supreme sacrifice for his God and his country, and died as he had lived, with courage and spirit. His ability and his unusal personality can, perhaps, be best shown in the words of a poem he wrote just prior to his death, and which was found on his person after earthly life was for him ended:
Rest in peace, your work is done,
For God and country you have won.
No more you'll climb those hills so high;
The cause of which so many died.
To God your soul has passed away
For lasting peace we hope and pray.
