Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Kenneth Alan Dahl, 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

Remembrance

My brother Ken was the 2nd son of my parents, Duane and Mildred Dahl. My dad served in the Army in WWII at the Battle of the Bulge. He was proud of my two older brothers as both of them followed his footsteps and enlisted in the Army. Both of my older brothers served in Vietnam. Lowell Dahl in 1966-67 and Ken in 1970-71.



My family, my dad, mother, sister, youngest brother and myself devotedly drove to the airport each and every time, sending off my older brothers to service and joyfully picking them up on their return.



In November of 1969, my Dad put us all on an airplane to Fort Lewis Washington to watch Ken’s graduation from boot camp. This was an important aspect of my Dad showing the love, respect and support he had for his son.



Ken came home for Christmas in 1969 prior to leaving for Vietnam. I was a sophomore in high school and had just met my first boyfriend and current husband of almost 40 years. Ken and a girlfriend and Bill and I went on a double date during the time he was home for Christmas. This is one of the happiest memories I have of this time period. While in Vietnam, Ken and I wrote letters back and forth and he had great pleasure teasing me about my boyfriend. Ken also wrote letters back and forth with my youngest sibling, Jason Dahl. These letters I treasure more than anything due to the fact I lost my youngest brother in a separate national event as he was the Captain of United Flight 93 which was overtaken in the terrorist attack on 9112001.



I am including pictures of Ken in his army picture, high school graduation and one family photo of Ken at Christmas 1969 with my younger sister, Joan, youngest brother Jason and myself. This picture was the last picture taken of Ken before he left for Vietnam.
