    Dear Ssgt Davis Butcher,
    Thank you for your service as an Indirect Fire Infantryman (Instructor.) As another summer comes to an end, it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear SSGT Davis Carroll Butcher, 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

    Went to school with Davis. He was a quiet, gentle soul with a beautiful smile. It just didn't register that he would be gone permanently. When you are a teenager things are just not that serious. This was a huge war for the U.S. But because it wasn't on our soil it was, to us teenagers, not a big deal. My own brother did 3 tours over there. I don't remember being afraid for him. Now, as a Mother of a soilder who fought in the sand, I get it. So, Davis, my friend, GAVE ALL.
    I will always remember him. And, in my minds eye, he will forever be young.

    I was with him thirty minutes before he was killed. Loved him like a brother. Showed me pics of his wife and I believe two little girls. I have a big regret. Never having gone to his family after my return Just wanted to say hello and what a great guy he was. Rest in peace my friend.
