My Big Brother

Our family was beyond devastated when Dennis died. At the time, our parents did not reach out to anyone so I'm certain they did not know about this website. Dennis was the best brother anyone could have and I was young and confused without his wise counsel. Only since our parents passing have I tried to find out all I could about Dennis' last months and days while a Marine. And, he was a Marine through and through! I am thankful to have met and talked with those who were with him in Vietnam and grateful to have attended 3/4 reunions. It was wonderful to spend time with those brave veterans.
On behalf of our family, I want to say thank you to all who posted here. Your thoughts and memories about Dennis are comforting to me, his only remaining family member. I know our mom and dad would have loved reading the posts.
I truly believe God has a plan for all of us. His plan for Dennis took him away from us, but into His hands for eternity. We will enjoy his company again.
Semper Fi, Big Brother....Cynthia Babers Stafford

Blessed to have known you.

I remember Battalion Commander Dennis Babers with a heavy heart. He was an upper class man when I was at Admiral Farragut Academy. He was my first encounter of what a leader should be. His image was perceived by me as one that would be ideally attained if one applied themselves with wholeheartedness and vigor. This standard of achievement is meant only for heroes and legends. He always treated underclassmen with dignity and respect. I am 69 know and this has always been my memory of Dennis, a true American hero.
