    Oh Dave, it was fifty years ago today that we lost you. So many hopes and dreams died with you that day in 1965, but my love for you will never die. I miss you, honey, every day.

    On this day 50 years ago, we lost a great man, One I never met, he was killed before I was born, but I feel like I know him. He was my uncle. He was killed in a war that gained us nothing by distrust in our government. Our Vietnam heroes were not honored when they returned and too many didn't return. Today, I want to thank those that served in Vietnam. You answered a call from your country and you did it honorably. Those that were doing the call did not honor you. Thanks so much for your service.
    Today, I pray for the families of the men and women on the Vietnam wall. My family understands your pain.
    Even though I never met you Uncle Dave, I miss you. I wish you could be part of our lives. We will meet one day, until then I love you.
    Your niece,
    Erika

    Dear LCPL David Dayle McKenzie, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    We were classmates at St Mary Magdilen in Melvindale, MI, We played football, basket ball and baseball in the CYO. We were altar boys and sometimes crazy little kids. Thought of you last weekend when we were in Washington DC. Visited you at the WALL. 50 years seems like just yesterday we were getting ready for some sports practice.
    REST IN PEACE - grade school friend.
