Dear Col Donald King, Thank you for your service as a Tactical Fighter Pilot. You are still MIA. Please come home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Advent, and almost Christmas. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Donald Gene King, 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

My Brother - The Peace Loving Silver Star Hero

Don was a peaceful and loving man who did not want to kill anyone. He signed his letters with the peace symbol and that symbol is now on his grave marker. He died as a Silver Star hero trying to save the life of a wounded comrade after only five weeks in Viet Nam. He was always special, having been voted 'Most Popular Boy' and Athlete of the Year in junior high and he was a track and basketball star in high school. He loved rock and roll and he introduced it to me when he gave me my first record, 'Peggy Sue' by Buddy Holly, for my ninth birthday. I now treasure his collection of 45's that he gave me. He had a deep love for his friends and family, but especially his two children Jimmy and Tracy, who were only seven and four when he died. He asked me to look after them if anything happened to him and I have never missed an event in their lives, but it has always been bittersweet without him there, especially Tracy's wedding when her brother walked her down the aisle instead of her Dad. He would be so proud of the outstanding people that they have turned out to be, thanks to their mother, Carole. He was much more than just a big brother to me, he was my confidant, my advisor and most of all, my most loyal friend. I was only 20 when he died, so I have missed him for most of my life. I named my first born son after him, Mark Donald, and I am very honored and grateful to have been his little sister.
