  • I was there

    Posted on 1/9/18 - by John K. Roberts robertsrkt@aol.com
    PFC Carter was (I believe) in the 2nd squad about 50 feet away from my 1st squad with a low rise between us. My squad was on the north side of the rise and his on the south. Third squad was on a peak, providing security for the 105 about 75 yards to our west. Just after dark, contact was made with several NVA sighted, approaching from the east, just below the 2nd squad at about 50 yards. The Lieutenant called for the 2nd squad to push the NVA off the hill and as soon as they started to menuver, 3 mortars struck in the midst of them.
    The Lieutenant crawled to me within 5 minutes and told me we had maybe 3 kia and many wounded that needed to be evacuated to try to save them. He said to take two of my fireteam to our north about 100 feet to provide cover for the medivacs on the way.
    Lance Corporal Daniel F Lynch was also killed in the mortar attack and most if not all of their squad were injured.

    Dear PFC D. C. Carter,
    I hope your photo is put here because this is a wall of faces and yours should be here. Thank you for service as an Antitank Assaultman. Yesterday we celebrated Columbus Day, and we remember those of you who served. 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 strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC D C Carter, 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
