REMEMBRANCES

  • 1968

    Posted on 2/4/14 - by Tom Walker
    I remember you from the time we shared with the 101st when we were both new to country (Viet Nam). I have always considered you among the most dedicated soldiers I met during my year (Dec 67-Dec 68). we exchanged barbs and laughs and it was good. I looked your name up on the traveling Wall many years ago and even did a painting in your honor. That painting was in a show at a gallery in greater Chicago last Summer so others might be aware of your sacrifice. I am 66 , married with 5 grown children and 1 deceased. I often wonder where you'd be today had it all turned out differently and I often feel guilty of surviving. Rest in peace and thank you. Tom Walker

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Dennis Lane Cunningham, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

  • MY BROTHER - MY HERO

    Posted on 5/29/13 - by Barbara Cunningham Ollis - dlh hoosierfaces@att.net

    Dennis found his calling in the military. He wanted to be a Green Beret but he wasn't old enough before he went to Vietnam. He was awarded the Bronze Star for knocking out a machine gun position with a weapon that didn't have the necessary range but he neutralized it anyway. His group said it was a great shot and saved lives in doing so. We received a letter in his belongings that he had started before he was killed where he told us about the event. He was surprised that anyone thought it was such a big deal.


    My parents, my brother and I were crushed by his death but so proud of his life.

    Dennis, I never met you. I'm from El Paso, too, the Northeast. There is a VFW Post there that was named in your honor. God bless and keep you, Dennis!
