    Dear Sgt Derrel Dickey,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. Today is the 43rd anniversary of the last battle of the war. 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'm proud of our Vietnam Veterans

    I remember just before Uncle Keith left for service, we had a family dinner. I was just a little girl and we were standing in line to get our food. I was looking up at him and thinking how handsome he was! He told me that his favorite pie was cherry. To this day, cherry is my favorite pie! Love and miss you, Uncle Keith.

    Dear SGT Derrel Keith Dickey, 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
