honoring you...

War drew us from our homeland
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.

Thank You

Dear Lcpl David Land, Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. For many of us, we have begun Lent. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Just remembering you

David, we both attended St. John's Catholic School and graduated together from Bay High. I was in college when I learned of your death. I did my service during the Vietnam War in the Coast Guard a couple of years later. I sure remember you and enjoyed your friendship. I've seen your name on the Wall. You are remembered and missed. God bless and keep your daughter.

A father I never knew

Hi David,
I am your daughter, as my birth name was Lorie Lee Land. I recently came across this website, so I thought I would leave you a note. You died when I was a baby, although I know you knew about me. I knew about you from my mother, as I know the circumstances of my birth were not ideal. Your family never took any effort to contact me, although my maternal grandmother has lived in the same house till this day. I did contact your father after the death of your mother. I met your sisters, brother, and other family members back around 1993, and Deborah and Denise visited me around 2001 or so. I have visited your grave several times in the past, and even drove by your parents house as a teenager when I was in Panama City, but never approached them, as I figured they did not want to know me. Too bad, as I would have loved to have known them, and about you from them. Well, I am now 52, been married for 29 years, and have 3 sons. Your grandsons are Brett, 26, Garrett, 22, and Trent, 18. Brett is studying to take the LSTAT for law school, Garrett is a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army, and Trent is a senior in high school and very athletic. Trent looks a lot like you, especially the brown eyes. He also shares the same birthday, July 14 and his middle name is Leland (from my birth name). Maybe we will meet one day in Heaven, and I can finally call you my father.
