Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/26/13 - by Curt CarterDear 2LT David Leonard Ugland, 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

Gridley High School Social/Political Science Class ProjectPosted on 11/8/03 - by Jordan Meiss firstname.lastname@example.orgDuring times of war the eyes of Americans are opened up and our nation becomes stronger together. No longer do citizens take things for granted, such as remembering soldiers who gave their lives in battle fighting for an earlier cause. The truth is the cause was just as important then as it is now. Unfortunately, our generation does not always give credit where credit is due. This recognition is an attempt to restore the undying appreciation we need to have for this great soldier and all those who gave up everything they had and everything they loved for America. God bless.MORE

Many memorable times in between, from the simple to the crazy! Our regular correspondence throughout college and into his tour in Viet Nam was fun and valued. There has been a big hole in my life, since David gave his lifeMORE
