  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear Captain David Marshall Davies, 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

    Curt Carter

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchnace, may therein comfort you.

  • A Friend Not Forgotten

    Dave and I grew up together, grade school through Roosevelt high school, in Seattle. We served in Viet Nam at the same time, he in the Army, me in the USAF. My mother called me at Pease AFB, NH about 38 years ago to inform me of Dave's death. I remember that phone call distinctly. Dave was on R&R in Saigon, asleep in his hotel room, when a grenade/bomb went off in the room next to him. The wall he was sleeping next to collapsed on him, taking his life. I will never forget Dave, classmate and friend. God bless you Dave.
  • Remembrance to a friend

    Dave and I were class mates from grade school through high school. We were in Viet Nam at the same time. He was Army, I was in the USAF. My mother called me in 1966 to inform of an article she had read in the Seattle Times about Dave. I can remember the conversation distinctly. Dave was on R and R in Saigon. He was in a hotel asleep, when a bomb exploded in the next room. The wall next to him collapsed taking his life. Thank you Dave for the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country free. I will never forget you.
