  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear 2LT David Joseph Bolton, 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

    David Bolton was a very special friend (even though he was from Marysville). Our families were quite close for a period of time. I was in hopes that he would become a "brother" although that was not to be. Every time I see his name I have such wonderful memories of our friendship. Thank you David for protecting all of us during a very difficult time. You always were one of the most special of friends and you are still missed! Rest in peace.

  • One Really Nice Guy

    Posted on 5/26/14 - by Jack Lee (class of 64)
    I knew David from Yuba City High School wrestling, he was in a class ahead of me. He was extremely fit and I never saw him lose. He was a nice guy and he dated one of the prettiest girls in school...yeah, we were all envious! I saw David and (Sharon S) frequently walking home from school on a Clark Avenue. In 1968 I was back in Yuba City after serving on a Navy ship and that's when heard he was killed in action. It seemed hard to believe. He such was an outstanding athlete and so capable of taking care of himself. The rumor I heard was he was an artillery spotter and that he was killed while being placed on a hill top, but again, just rumor. We lost a good person when he was killed.
