    I remember your return from basic training and throwing Becky over your shoulder and onto the couch at her home. I remember your leadership in sports and your desire to follow your faith into perhaps the ministry. I remember the news of your death and the long lone lines of people who turned out for the celebration of your life. My own trip to Vietnam did not come until 1969. I was there when Johnny was killed but I didn't know about it until I rotated back home. Johnny was killed on my birthday. I have asked many times why you and others did not survive and I did. Only God knows. Until we meet in the Lords house my friend.

    Dear LCPL David Allan Kovac, 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
