    A good friend during grammar school but friendship faded in High School. He would have celebrated his 50th class reunion 2016, Oroville High School class of 1966. Followed you from a far, RIP Dale, a friend from long ago.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Dale Evan Hill, 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

  • PFC Dale Evan Hill

    Posted on 1/26/11 - by Linda L. Hill
    After basic, DAle was sent to Fort Knox, Kentucky to learn to dive a personnel carrier before going to Vietnam. After arriving in Vietnam he soon learned you were located where you were needed most. He was a marksman with a rifle and they needed him at the front lines with his gun more than in a personnel carrier. This was the year of the Tet, 1968. He lived just 28 days in Vietnam. It's strange, but he used to tell his mother he wouldn't be on earth for very long. He always felt he had to do things much faster than most. Even in marriage and having a family. He was married at the age of 17 and had two wonderful sons before he died at the age of 20. Dale always had a way about him, trying to make you laugh. Even though he was in Vietnam just a short time, he left quite an impression on his comrades. After his death they wrote his family wanting to know what a good person he was to them. That he always had a kind word to give, and was always trying to lift their spirits when they were down and feeling homesick. They were proud to have known him. This is the kind of person Dale was, and not surprising to his family that he gave his life saving two of his friends lives. You will never be forgotten Dale.
