SSGT David Barrus

David Barrus was a wrestler in high school. When our jr. high phys. ed. class did a unit on wrestling David came to class and did a demonstration. I thought he was funny, smart, and skilled. I remember the day his death was announced at school. Many cried at the news. David’s brother Doug was a good friend. I thought Doug was forever changed after David died.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT David William Barrus, 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
