    Dear Captain Delma Dickens,
    Thank you for your service as a Navigator. Yesterday was Mother's Day, and I wish you all were here with your moms. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I would like to remember you in a collection of stories that I’m compiling called A Circle of Soldiers. You are one of 31 soldiers to die in Vietnam from Colquitt County, Ga. I hope that your family and friends will contact me as others have done. Our plan is to create a memorial exhibition in the Colquitt County Museum. Thank you so much for your service and sacrifice.

    Dear Captain Delma Ernest Dickens, 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.
