I still remember you too

I was also in that 7th grade history class at Cecil Avenue Elementary School in Delano, California. I think of Mr Moilanen often. I can still see him standing in class telling us he had been drafted, he didn’t want to go. I remember him saying he was a teacher not a fighter. He said I’m afraid that I won’t come back.
I still have my 8th grade yearbook that had a 8 x 10 memorial picture of him the following year. He will always hold a special spot in my heart.

47 years and still on my mind.
R.I.P. MR Moilanen and thank you for your service.
Gone but not forgotten.

I still remember you.

Mr. Moilanen was my 7th grade history teacher at Cecil Avenue Elementary School in Delano, Ca. I remember him telling our class that he wouldn't be teaching the following year because he had been drafted into the Army.

I had left my history book out on the basketball courts and it rained overnight. I remember taking the ruined book to him and he cut me a break. He was a good teacher and seemed like a nice, regular kind of guy.

The following year, the school announced that he had been killed in action. My 8th grade yearbook was dedicated to him. He was one teacher I had over forty years ago but still think of him

Such a sad event this good mans life cut short.

Thanks for the break Mr. Moilanen, thanks for the break.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Dale Burton Moilanen, 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
