My Marine Brother

There were three of us that left Louisville KY in March of 63 on a train bound for South Carolina, David Larry and me, we were on our way to Parris Island SC to go to Marine Corps boot camp.

During our trip David and I became good friends, and help each other while we were in booth camp. After boot camp we were transferred to Camp Pendleton CA and joined Bravo Co. 1st Bn 5th Marines.

In Nov of 63 we were transferred to Okinawa Japan and became Fox Co. 2nd Bn 3rd Marines. We spent twelve months there and returned to the states in Nov of 64, were be went on leave for 30 days.

In Jan 65 we returned and became Bravo 1st Bn 1st Marines and in late July of 65 we received orders that the entire Bn was to board a ship and go to Viet Nam. In Nov of 65 and Feb of 66 the Bn was broken up and Marines from 1/1 were sent to other units, and David was sent to 3/3 were he was KIA while defending the BAS.

I am in touch with his family members and I have been to his resting place, and still to this day I miss him. He was one hell of a Marine and one hell of a BROTHER.

Rest in Peace my BROTHER for Heaven is well protected by you and the other Vets, I will join you there some day, because we did our time in Hell.

Semper Fi to you and all the other Vets of Viet Nam.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL David Eugene Hornby, 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
