Thank you for your service as an Infantryman with the 1st Cavalry. Independence Day is approaching, and we remember you. We remember all you who gave their all. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call.

Until my Last Days ...

I'll remember you until my last days, Danny. I served with you until that fateful day, April 20, 1971, when you and others from our platoon were taken from our midst. We were so badly outnumbered by the enemy that nothing could save you that horrible day.
I remember you and I talking about our wives, and our marriages ... and your beautiful wife, and how much you loved her and that you, like myself, had not been married long. You will be missed by many, Danny, but you will never be forgotten. We were Brothers then, we are Brothers now ... and ALWAYS!

Veterans Day 2016

I must have been mistaken about Danny Drinkard's wife being
pregnant at our Basic Training picnic, in 1970
I apologize to Lori O'Day.
I do remember Danny, a woman and children at the picnic.
It was 46 years ago. I'm probably lucky I remember that much.
I think about Danny all the time, especially on Veterans Day.
He is missed.
Thanks.

Grateful

I pause today to remember Danny, who married my mother and became Daddy Danny to me and my twin sister when we were only three years old. We knew him such a short time, but each memory is full of love . He loved us as his own, and had planned to adopt us when he got home. He was never able to do that, but through the GI Bill we were both able to go to college. His love echoes in my memory, and I am forever grateful for his brief presence in our lives.
