  • My Cousin Dennis,

    Posted on 3/12/17 - by Annette Montpetit
    Denny wrote to me from Vietnam, and mailed the letter on his ship before he went ashore to fight his last battle on this side of life. It was post marked Dec 11, 1965. I was 17, he was 19 back then. His death devastated our entire family. I will never forget the "frozen scene" when we got the call. He and his brother were always a huge part of my childhood. We were so close. I was so small, around 5 or 6 and Denny would place me on his handle bars and deliver his newspapers. We celebrated every birthday, and Holiday together, along with his brother Duane. Dennis was the oldest, then Duane, then me. We watched 1940 horror flicks and we walked to candy stores and spent all we had. We walked to church, and to school together. We had a wonderful childhood. Detroit was our hometown. We had our own "our gang". I remember lying in the dirt along with Denny playing with a 100 green plastic soldiers, loosing my favorite marbles to them during our many marble games.

    Dear LCPL Dennis Carrol Manning, 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

    Dennis was with Echo Company of the 1st Marines. We landed in a very hot zone on December 11, 1965. Dennis was the frist Echo 21 Marine to be killed in Vietnam.

    He was a great friend and well liked by all. Dennis, the battalion gets together every year around the Marine Corps Birthday and you are remembered.
