    Hi Duane,
    I remember you well. My last letter to you didn't make it before you died. I sure enjoyed having you as a friend. Golf at Lilliput was always fun. You always put a smile on my face when you came in to the DQ. You are truly missed and greatly appreciated for your Great sacrifice.

    In loving memory.

  • Jim Kivisto remembers Duane Larson

    Duane was in Company B, 5th Battalion, 7th Cavalry. I got to know him when our company would have some free time on the forward base camps. My parents would send me the Anoka Shopper to read. I would give it to him, because we were from the same area of Anoka County.
    We would talk about what we would do when we got back home and talked about getting together to do things. When I was ready to leave Vietnam in December 1969, in our last conversation, he told me he didn't think he was going to make it back alive. I told him- sure he would.
    Shortly after, at home, my Dad showed me the Anoka Shopper and asked if I knew him. It had an article on him as KIA in Vietnam.
    I have a plaque in the back window of our '57 Chevy in honor of him. I think of him often. He is not forgotten.

    Photo is Duane’s 1966 Fridley High School senior class picture. The picture was found and provided by Herb Reckinger Jr. of Cottage Grove, Minnesota. Thank you Herb!

    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 Duane.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Duane Clifford Larson, 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
