Swansonville Friend

On this day of remembrance, Memorial Day, 2020, I remember Donald fondly and the rest of the Herndon family. I was one of the fortunate who returned from the RVN in 1968, learned that Donald had died and have since made of a rubbing of his name on the Vietnam Wall. My country summers spent playing with the Herndon boys and sometimes working on the family's combine (and once falling off a horse after losing my grip around Donald's waist while he piloted the horse around a newly plowed field) are fond memories. RIP my friend.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Donald Lee Herndon, 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
