  • A day doesn't go by...

    A day doesn't go by where you are not on my mind. I think about you often. You are forever young, just like the day you left in late March/early April of 1970 - rushing to say goodbyes to all of us. And your last words were to watch the news and we would know where you were sent.

    Dear Sgt Darrell Colford,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman (Scout Dog.) December is almost gone, along with all the preparations. It is the 5th Day of Christmas. It is so 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.

    Dear SGT Darrell Lee Colford, 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
