  • He was a true friend

    Posted on 10/26/16 - by Rick Keller
    David and I grew up together in NH. We played together in elementary school and remained friends through high school and until his death. He loved the outdoors - we spent many weekends camping, "plinking" with our 22's, building a log shelter in the woods. We once were hassled by the police because we came in from a camping trip to go to a Laconia High School football game, and we both were carrying hunting knives on our belts. David convinced them that it was an honest oversight.
    He loved the poetry of Robert Frost. He was kind, even-tempered, fun-loving, and his word was his bond. All these years later I still miss one of the best friends I have ever had.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CWO David A Kreitzer, 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

    I was best friends with David's younger brother. David worked for my parents business after high school until he joined the Army.I was at his house when the green Ford pulled up. He had told his mother that he was a cook, so she wouldn't worry.

  • Flight School Classmate

    Posted on 9/22/01 - by Jack R. Crist, fellow Warrant Officer and Otter Pilot in Vietnam
    David and I were in the same flight school class at Ft Rucker Alabama in 1965-66. We graduated together and were assigned to the same DeHavilland Otter training class at Ft Ord California. Once in Vietnam, we were assigned to different aviation companies. I lost track of him until learning of his death.

    I shall always remember David as a top notch pilot and a fine gentleman. He did his home state of New Hampshire proud.
