    Dear SSGT David Allen Parker, 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

    David was a proud member of the 5th Special Forces, servicing two tours of duty in Vietnam before being killed in action on 6 April 1968. He is the father of a beautiful daughter, Cynthia, whom he was able to meet when she was 10 months. He has been blessed with four grandchildren and he would be very proud of them. David was a free spirit, ever the dare-devil and that trait has been passed to his grandson David.
