In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

Remembering An American Hero
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
I have the greatest honor to read your name during the 'Reading of The Names', at The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, on November 9, 2012.
You will always be remembered by me and a most grateful nation.
Thank you LCPL David M. Jalbert for your service to America. Rest in Peace Brother.
