    SGT Harris was the NOCIC of my first patrol and ambush in Nam in July 1966. It was to guard a graveyard. During the night we heard a thud and thought for sure is was a grenade. Nothing happened, a short time later another thud was heard, we froze and again nothing. On the next thud we heard Harris yell out "@@@XXX' and the thuds stopped. He explained to us after it was probably some kids from the village throwing stones, I did't believe him.but he was the SGT. I spent many hours on patrol with SGT Harris and the third platoon, all fifteen of us. He is in my prayers tonight along with DOC Fox, L/CPL Chmiel.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT Dennis Day Harris, 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
