long ago lost friend

I was with Dave the morning he was killed in Vietnam.
I will never forget that day. We were close friends in Ft Irwin
California and went to Vietnam together by ship from Oakland.
I attempted to fly back to Dallas with his remains but was restricted
from doing so by MP's at Tan son Nhut AB.
Dave had been a student at Tulane and don't know he got drafted
and ended up in Vietnam.

There are eight million stories from Vietnam.
I knew of Dave's family and his father being a minister.
I believe that Dave's brother has joined him in the
'Promised Land'.

Bless You, long ago friend and fellow veteran.

Stuart, FL
Vietnam veteran 67-68

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 David Warren Leatherbury, 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

From a friend who remembers

David's father was my family's Parish Priest in Fort Worth, Texas. I well remember the sad news that David had died in Viet Nam. He was a fine young man from a wonderful family and we were crushed to hear of his death. A very strong bond was established between our families when my brother Terry was killed in action a few months after David was lost. We suffered through a terrible year together. I like to think that Terry and David are in a perfect place now, along with many loved ones, never to know war or strife again. I remember you David in my prayers.
