January 26, 1967

Today January 26, 2014 is 47 years since Denny was killed on Operation Tuscaloosa in Vietnam. I went to school with him in Elkins, WV and we were together in Hotel Company in Vietnam. I was in 1st platoon while he was with 3rd platoon. On January 26, 1967 I spoke with Denny about an hour before he was shot. Hotel company was rear security for a river crossing during the operation. We were getting mortar fire from a stone house to our right while we were crossing a river. 3rd platoon went off to the right to assault across the river and knock out those mortar tubes. As 3rd platoon passed our position, I told Denny I'd see him on the other side of the river. I helped load his body on a helo. He had been killed on a sand bar with several others during the river crossing. I clean his memorial plate every year at the Little Arlington Veterans Cemetery near Elkins every year.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Dennis Warren Baxter, 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
