Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL David Lynn Bell, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Visiting David

I brought my Navy Junior ROTC Cadets to visit David's name on the Vietnam Memorial Wall. David was a childhood friend, neighbor, and fellow football player. I am honored to remember his sacrifice. He left behind a beautiful girlfriend, Betty Smith, who never recovered from the loss. Part of the reason I joined the Navy and served 22 years was because of the sacrifice of David and young men like him. I bring my Cadets by the Wall when we take trips to Washington, DC, about every three years. I try to educate them that the price of freedom is paid forward by David to them. Many of my Cadets want to serve their country, and I want them to understand the price of that service can be the ultimate - the last full measure of service.
