Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/5/13 - by Curt CarterDear LCPL David Lee Skinner, sirMORE
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

Another Childhood Friend From WalkertonPosted on 7/26/03 - by Thomas V. GunnDavid and I were school mates at the old brick elementary school at Walkerton, Indiana. He was a cub scout and I was a member for a short time in the same cub scout troop, and his mom was our Den Mother. David was a US Marine and I was a Marine as well, we both served in Vietnam; however, my buddy didn't make it back, by God's grace, I came home. David, you will always be in my memory, you are not forgotten my precious schoolboy buddy, may God watch over you forever.MORE
