    Dear Sgt David Gamboa,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. 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.
  • Peace with Honor

    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor David.
  • Great Friend, forever remembered.

    David was a great friend and fellow soldier. He was everyone's friend and it was an honor to serve with him. We miss you David and will never forget your service to our great country.
    David was injured minutes after I was injured. I was hit in the leg and right hand and crawled into the bunker Dave was in and I tried to wrap my wounds when we were hit directly in front of the bunker where David was positioned. He was hit and we were air lifted out together.
    I would have posted earlier but didn't know this site existed. I will post some photos as soon I can.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT David Hercliff Gamboa Jr, 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
